A:
The new implant device for sleep apnea treatment has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). People with moderate to severe central sleep apnea have a new treatment option.

The new device called the Remedē System that can stimulate a nerve located in the chest. The responsibility of the nerve is to seed signals to your diaphragm to keep normal breathing.

The Remedē System consists of a battery pack surgically placed under your skin in the upper chest area and thin wires inserted into your blood vessels in the chest near the nerve (phrenic). The device can monitor your respiratory signals during sleep, and if it finds any pattern of abnormal breathing, it will stimulate the nerve and help you keep normal breathing.
