Hypoglossal nerve stimulation also known as pacemaker for the tongue or upper airway stimulation. It is an implantable medical device that electrically stimulates the hypoglossal nerve to the tongue that helps in reduction of obstructive sleep apnea. Additionally, the hypoglossal nerve can be defined as the nerve starting from the brain stem to the neck downwards and again back till tongue. It helps in motor control of tongue muscle as well as voluntary and involuntary functions such as swallowing, and others. Furthermore, hypoglossal nerve stimulator therapy works inside the individual’s body and helps in the natural breathing of the patient’s process by treating sleep apnea. Airways are kept open during sleep helping oxygen to flow naturally. This stimulating device and breathing sensor are implanted in the chest of the patient which are connected to stimulating lead that further connects the hypoglossal nerve. Patients use small handheld remote to operate before going to sleep and once they wake up. Hypoglossal nerve stimulation consists of a programmable pulse-generating system, stimulating electrode, and implantable intrathoracic pressure sensor. In addition to this, hypoglossal nerve stimulation is used for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea which deals with the most commonly observed sleep disorder indicating continuous start and stops of breathing during sleep.
