Experimental: Intervention Group
Subjects meeting inclusion criteria, including sleep study and drug induced sleep endoscopy criteria, will undergo surgical placement of a hypoglossal nerve stimulator. The stimulator will be activated one month after surgery and subjects will undergo repeat sleep study evaluation and device titration at one, two, six and twelve months after implantation. Subjects will be followed for one year to determine safety and efficacy of the device.
Device: Inspire® Upper Airway Simulation System, Model 3024 IPG, and any subsequent iteration thereof that are approved under P130008 for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea
Subjects will be implanted with a hypoglossal nerve stimulator. Safety and efficacy of implantation will be evaluated.
Other Name: hypoglossal nerve stimulator
- Number of patients with adverse events [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Study subjects will be monitored closely to verify that implantation may be performed safely in this population.
- Frequency of device usage [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Study subjects will be monitored closely to determine frequency of usage through self-report logs and device interrogation.
- Efficacy of implantation in adolescents and young adults with Down syndrome (Sleep questionnaires) [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Sleep questionnaires will be given to assess subjective changes in response to treatment. Scheduled polysomnograms will be performed to evaluate objective changes in sleep patterns in response to the device.
