|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|
