Renowned Hudson Valley ENT Sleep Specialist Selected to Participate in FDA Study of New Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment
Date:6/24/2013

Middletown, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2013

Ofer Jacobowitz, M.D., PhD. FAASM, FAAOA, an Otolaryngologist and Sleep Medicine specialist, is one of only three doctors in the United States who have been selected by the sponsor to participate in the current FDA study for ImThera Medical’s aura6000tm, a neurostimulation device for treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Dr. Jacobowitz, a nationally and internationally recognized expert in sleep apnea, has implanted the device in five patients to date. The procedures were performed at Orange Regional Medical Center (ORMC) located in Middletown, NY, where Dr. Jacobowitz serves as Associate Medical Director of the ORMC Center for Sleep. Dr. Jacobowitz is the only physician conducting the study in New York State and the study is the only one taking place on the East Coast.

The aura6000 device delivers electrical pulses to generate targeted motions of the tongue in order to keep patients’ airways open during sleep. The device is implanted in a surgical procedure that averages approximately 60 minutes. The system uses ImThera Medical’s patented Targeted Hypoglossal Neurostimulation (THN™ Sleep Therapy) to focus neurostimulation on certain muscles of the tongue, and acts as a “pacemaker” preventing the tongue from blocking the airways during sleep, the primary cause of obstruction in a majority of sleep apnea patients. The aura6000 is one of the world’s smallest implantable rechargeable stimulators and does not require external sensors to function. Prior to sleep, patients simply turn it on with the push of a button on a remote controller.

ImThera Medical, Inc. announced European CE Mark (Conformité Européenne) approval of its aura6000 system in March 2012. The device is investigational in the US.

“I am extremely honored to have been selected to conduct the FDA trials,” said Dr. Jacobowitz. “Many sleep apnea patients will not wear cumbersome air pressure devices
