New Innovations in Sleep Apnea
There is a significant amount of new research going on in the area of sleep medicine in terms of both the diagnosis and the treatment of sleep apnea. On the diagnosis side, medical professionals are trying to figure out how they can diagnose sleep apnea using less electrodes in a more convenient setting.
On the treatment side, medical professionals are exploring new innovations that may help keep the airway open. This includes devices placed in the nose or devices that use a small amount of electrical stimulation, similar to a pacemaker to keep the airway open.
