Interesting. This is similar to hypogolossal stimulation, but used on a different nerve to treat central apnea. Very interesting article. Thanks for posting it.
No, it wouldn't work for obstructive apneas since they are physical in nature. The signal to breathe is there, but an obstruction is present.
Like a pacemaker that sends stimulation to breathe....
