A study in the October issue of the journal SLEEP shows that upper airway stimulation of the hypoglossal nerve for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea demonstrated a consistent and sustained therapy response at 18 months after implantation. Results also show that the stimulation level required to produce predefined tongue activation remained stable from 1 month to 18 months after implant.
