Abstract

Introduction: Obstructive Sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. Symptoms include snoring and feeling exhausted even after a full night's sleep. Treatment often includes lifestyle changes, such as weight loss and the use of a breathing assistance device at night, such as a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. However, due to the bulky design of the CPAP machine and it being an unpleasant experience for the bed partners, the drive for a more compliant design has led to the eXciteOSA machine. 

Objective: To elicit the advancement in the treatment of OSA.

eXcite OSA: The genioglossal muscle neurostimulation technology. The eXcite OSA is a daytime therapy that uniquely addresses the cause of snoring and mild sleep apnea by using safe electrical current to stimulate and improve muscle functions in the mouth and tongue. The genioglossal muscle neurostimulation technology.

Conclusion: The eXciteOSA mouthpiece may not be the holy grail of the treatment of mild obstructive sleep apnea, but it has shown remarkable results so far that could inspire future treatments.
