New Experimental Treatment for Sleep Apnea
They mentioned a new Sleep Apnea treatment currently in Clinical Trial. It stimulates the tongue keeping it awake so that it does not fall back and block the airway. It has not been cleared yet for general use. The name is hypo glossical something. Channel 7 said to go to their website abc7chicago.com for more details.
