Upper Airway Stimulation


Since a few years for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) a new therapy is available in addition to the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy: "The selective stimulation of the upper airway by a pacemaker" (also called tongue pacemaker or hypoglossus stimulation). This is an implantable device, which performs a mild stimulation of the upper airway muscles to keep the airway open during sleep. ng at night.


The sleep laboratory of the ENT departement of the hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar is one of the few specialized centers in Germany, that are offering this therapy. Due to the long experience with this treatment, the hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar is one of the few international training and research centers for selective upper airway stimulation. If you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea and a CPAP mask is not tolerated by you, we can offer you alternative treatments such as selective upper airway stimulation. We would appreciate to offer you in a private consultation to figure out if you are eligible for this therapy. Just arrange an appointment in our ENT departement during sleep consultation hour. The team of the sleep laboratory is looking forward to see you.
