Inspire Medical prices up-sized $108m IPO

Inspire Medical Systems yesterday up-sized its initial public offering to $108 million, or some $124 million if the underwriters option is exercised in full. Maple Grove, Minn.-based Inspire, which spun out from Medtronic (NYSE:MDT) in 2007, makes devices for treating obstructive sleep apnea. The company had said it planned to issue 5 million shares at $14 to $16 apiece, which would have fetched $75 million at the midpoint. But in a regulatory filing yesterday, Inspire said it sold 6.75 million shares at $16 apiece and put an underwriters option on the table that’s worth another $16.2 million. Inspire, which posted net losses of -$17.5 million on sales of $28.6 million last year, plans to list on the New York Stock Exchange under the INSP symbol. The flotation is slated to price next week. The company developed a pacemaker-like system designed to stimulate nerves to keep airways open during sleep to treat obstructive sleep apnea. BofA Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs &Co are acting as underwriters for the offering, according to an SEC filing. In November 2016, Inspire Medical closed a $37.5 million Series F round.

Authors: Chabowski M, Juzwiszyn J, Bolanowska Z, Brzecka A, Jankowska-PolaƄska B Abstract Chronic nonmalignant pulmonary diseases impose a heavy burden on patients, generate health-care costs, and contribute to poor health-related quality of life. It has been found that a wide range of factors negatively affects quality of life, but the role of acceptance of illness needs to be further investigated. The aim of the study was to evaluate the relationship between acceptance of illness and quality of life in patients with chronic nonmalignant pulmonary diseases. The study encompassed 200 patients of the mean age 58&nb...

Publication date: Available online 22 May 2019Source: Journal of Chemical NeuroanatomyAuthor(s): Caroline E. Boyle, Anjum Parkar, Amanda Barror, Leszek KubinAbstractIn obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients, contraction of the muscles of the tongue is needed to protect the upper airway from collapse. During wakefulness, norepinephrine directly excites motoneurons that innervate the tongue and other upper airway muscles but its excitatory effects decline during sleep, thus contributing to OSA. In addition to motoneurons, NE may regulate activity in premotor pathways but little is known about these upstream effects. To start...

Conclusions: Sleepy driving and a high risk of OSA was prevalent among the study population of male truck drivers in Saudi Arabia. Not getting good-quality sleep and driving experience from 6 to 10 years contributes to the accident risk among these truck drivers. PMID: 31120335 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

(Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2018;219(2):147–161) Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) consists of a spectrum of respiratory and ventilation abnormalities ranging from snoring to obstructive sleep apnea and is an increasingly common condition in the nonobstetric population. It can be associated with morbidity. The incidence of SDB in pregnant women is unknown and many cases likely go undiagnosed. This systematic review and metaanalysis aimed to determine whether pregnant women diagnosed with SDB were more likely to have adverse intrapartum and perinatal outcomes compared with control subjects.
