The latest technology
Home testing: Our home sleep tests can measure moderate to severe sleep apnea. Smartphone apps, bedside monitors and wearable items such as bracelets and smart watches can collect and analyze data about your sleep patterns.
Inspire device for apnea: OHSU is the first center in the Northwest to offer Inspire, an implantable device. The Inspire device monitors breathing patterns and, when needed, stimulates your nervous system to keep the airway open during sleep.
