God is love, power, and splendor—and God is a mystery. His ways are far beyond us, but He still reaches out to us. God is infinite yet intimate, three yet one,

Story by Kettering Adventist HealthCare Staff

Kettering Adventist HealthCare's Sleep Center at the Kettering Medical Center (Ohio) is offering a new treatment for people with obstructive sleep apnea who don’t tolerate or benefit from CPAP therapy.

Inspire is an FDA-approved obstructive sleep apnea treatment. It’s a device that’s implanted under the skin of the neck and chest during an outpatient procedure. The device is controlled by a small, handheld remote. While you sleep, Inspire delivers mild stimulation to key airway muscles, allowing the airway to remain open–without a mask, hose, or machine.
