Experimental: 4 Week Snoozeal Use
Participants will take the device home and be required to use it for 20 minutes morning and night every day for at least 4 weeks. The SnooZeal records usage time to allow assessment of compliance.
Device: Transoral Neurostimulation Device (Snoozeal)
Use of the Transoral Neurostimulation Device for 20 minutes, morning and night, every day for at least 4 weeks.
- NREM EMGgg [ Time Frame: 6 hours ]Genioglossal muscle activity as measured by two 25 gauge needles each containing a Teflon-coated stainless steel recording wire (<0.1 mm in diameter with ~1 mm at the tip bared of Teflon and bent to form a small hook) placed perorally 1.5-2 cm into the body of the genioglossus muscle.
- Change in percent total sleep time spent snoring [ Time Frame: 6 hours ]Time spent snoring divided by total sleep time as determined by Polysomnogram
- Sleep Quality [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]A self-report questionnaire, titled the Pittsburgh Quality of Sleep Questionnaire (PSQI), asking several questions to determine quality of sleep over the past 1 month that will be scored and added together on a scale of 0-21.
- Daytime Sleepiness [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]A self-report questionnaire, titled the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), asking subjects to rate their probability of falling asleep during different situations on a scale of 0-3. Scores are added together to determine how sleepy the subject feels during the day on a scale of 0-24
