|20150039045||METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR APPLYING STIMULATION IN TREATING SLEEP DISORDERED BREATHING - A stimulation protocol determination system includes an input module and a selector module. The input module is provided to receive an indication of an upper airway flow limitation via sensed respiratory effort information. The selection module is provided to automatically select, based on the indicated upper airway flow limitation, a stimulation protocol.||02-05-2015|
|20130231726||NERVE CUFF - An electrode cuff includes a first elongate portion and a second elongate portion. The first elongate portion is configured to removably contact a length of a nerve while the second elongate portion extends outwardly at an angle relative to a first side edge of the first elongate portion to at least partially wrap about the nerve. The electrode cuff includes a first series of electrodes that is spaced apart longitudinally along the first elongate portion. A width of the second elongate portion is sized to fit between adjacent branches extending from a nerve.||09-05-2013|
|20120108945||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PATIENT SELECTION IN TREATING SLEEP DISORDERED BREATHING - A system and method provides for determining patient eligibility for receiving an implantable upper airway stimulation system. Images and sensed data are obtained regarding an upper airway of a patient. Based on the obtained image and sensed data, an obstruction vector is determined according to a location, a pattern, and a degree of obstruction along the upper airway. A patient candidate filter is applied against a patient health profile. Patient eligibility is determined based on the obstruction vector and application of the patient candidate filter.||05-03-2012|
|20120089153||PERCUTANEOUS ACCESS FOR SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF TREATING SLEEP APNEA - Systems and methods are described and illustrated for percutaneously implanting a stimulation lead for treating sleep-related disordered breathing.||04-12-2012|
|20110264164||METHOD OF TREATING SLEEP DISORDERED BREATHING - A system and method for automatically implementing a therapy for treating sleep disordered breathing.||10-27-2011|
|20110202119||TRANSVENOUS METHOD OF TREATING SLEEP APNEA - A system and method for treating sleep apnea includes inserting an implantable pulse generator subcutaneously within a body of a patient and connecting a lead to the pulse generator. The lead is inserted within the vasculature and advanced transvenously through the vasculature until a stimulation portion of the lead becomes positioned in close proximity to the hypoglossal nerve. A nerve-stimulation signal is applied to the hypoglossal nerve via the stimulation portion of the lead.||08-18-2011|
|20110152706||METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SENSING RESPIRATORY PRESSURE IN AN IMPLANTABLE STIMULATION SYSTEM - A method and system for sensing respiration in the treatment of sleep apnea is disclosed.||06-23-2011|
