Clemens Heiser, Joachim Maurer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Several systems for electrical stimulation of the genioglossus muscle to improve pharyngeal patency in obstructive sleep apnea exist. In this first part of this chapter, the Inspire system is discussed, in the second part the Aura6000 (Liva Nova) system, in the third part the Genio system (Nyxoah).
