eXciteOSA® is an innovative device that has been clinically proven to reduce mild sleep apnea and snoring. Instead of wearing a CPAP or other device at night, the simple-to-use eXciteOSA® therapy is used for just 20 minutes a day, for six weeks, to improve the quality of sleep.1-2 For many patients, eXciteOSA® gives them lasting relief that does not require masks and nighttime treatments.

eXciteOSA is on the Veterans Affairs National Formulary (VANF), subject to National Prior Authorization criteria.

You and your VA doctor can decide if eXciteOSA is right for you. To be eligible for treatment with eXciteOSA, veterans must be cared for by a VA doctor or VA-purchased-care.
