Our sleep specialists conduct research and identify improved sleep treatments. Sleep apnea, a potentially dangerous condition in which you stop breathing for a time during sleep is commonly treated with the CPAP machine. The machine delivers air pressure through a mask placed over your nose and mouth while you sleep. We were the first in the country to remotely monitor patient data from CPAP home use and adjust their therapy.
A University of Minnesota Health team was the first in the Twin Cities to successfully implant an upper airway stimulation therapy, an innovative treatment option that targets the nerves that control the muscles of your airway. Learn more.
