The OSPREY Study
Did you know that OSA is the most common type of sleep apnea? The OSPREY study researches the effectiveness of a new, innovative medical device called the aura6000 for moderate to severe OSA. The device treats obstructive sleep apnea using targeted hypoglossal neurostimulation, and is an alternative to the CPAP machine for treating sleep apnea. It has been approved by the FDA to commence an investigational device exemption (IDE) clinical study with Dr. Schalch Lepe as the principal investigator.
