Matchbox-sized Implant in the Neck can stop you Snoring


Chronic snoring can double the risk of death; it can be relieved with neck implant. The researchers have developed a matchbox-sized device that can regulate breathing for the people suffering from severe form of snoring condition. The study involved the patients who suffered from heart failure; there are two conditions; one is when the heart fails to beat with required force and the second is when the heart forgets to tell muscles to breathe as they sleep. The result of this study has shown that neck implant is quite effective in regulating the breathing. The new implant, titled Remede,  is supposed to be placed under the skin below the collar bone and a wire is threaded into one of the veins near the phrenic nerve that runs down to the lungs. Unlike traditional mask based therapies, Remede system is acceptable to most of the patients and improves their heart function and sleep.
