[Treatment] Upper Airway Stimulation treatment
#1
Question 
Upper Airway Stimulation treatment
Hi All,

I have severe sleep apnea but do not tolerate CPAP/BiPAP machines well.  I heard about the Inspire Upper Airway Stimulation treatment but found out you need to have a BMI of 35 or less to qualify for use.  Does anyone know why this is?

Thanks,

Roman
