Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction in OSA Severity [ Time Frame: from Baseline to 6 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The proportion of subjects that experience clinically meaningful improvement in AH1 (reduction >50% and AHI <20) and ODI 4% (reduction >= 25% or ODI 4% <5)from Baseline to 6 Months will be significantly greater in the Treatment Group compared to the Control Group

  • Long-term Reduction in OSA Severity [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The proportion of subjects in the Treatment Group that experience clinically relevant improvement in AHI (reduction >50% and AHI <20) and ODI 4% (reduction >=25% or ODI 4% <5 at 12 months compared to Baseline.

  • Safety Analysis [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment
The Treatment Arm is implanted with the HGNS System and therapy is turned on at 1 month post-implant.
Device: Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation (HGNS) System (Apnex Medical )
The HGNS System in an investigational device that includes three implantable components: a neurostimulator, a stimulation lead, and a respiration sensing lead. The HGNS System is designed to activate the muscles in the upper airway to help keep the airway open during sleep. The HGNS System is intended for the treatment of moderate to severe OSA in individuals that have failed or do not tolerate positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy.
Control
The Control Arm is implanted with the HGNS System and therapy is turned on at 7 months post-implant.
Device: Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation (HGNS) System (Apnex Medical )
The HGNS System in an investigational device that includes three implantable components: a neurostimulator, a stimulation lead, and a respiration sensing lead. The HGNS System is designed to activate the muscles in the upper airway to help keep the airway open during sleep. The HGNS System is intended for the treatment of moderate to severe OSA in individuals that have failed or do not tolerate positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy.
