Implanted device to treat apnea

  There's been an interesting development in the world of sleep apnea treatment.
  CBS Pittsburgh is reporting about a new implanted device called Inspire. The patient featured in the article struggled with CPAP and dental solutions.
  The device is compared to a pacemaker, with an electrode that moves the tongue to enable breathing to resume.
  Inspire was approved by the FDA in May so it is a new player on the sleep apnea landscape.
  It's worth keeping an eye on to see if it takes off.
