BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Space Coast Daily is sharing a new series called Health First Medical Minute, as Brevard’s largest health care provider continues to highlight and address important health concerns in our community. In this episode, Health First Otolaryngology James P. Lacey, MD, shares important information about the Inspire Sleep Apnea Device.

This FDA-approved implantable upper airway stimulation device functions like a pacemaker and stabilizes a patient’s throat during sleep in order to prevent obstruction. The device consists of three components: a programmable neuro-stimulator located in a chest pocket, a pressure sensing lead that detects a patient’s breathing, and a stimulator lead that delivers mild stimulation to the tongue nerve.

The stimulator is controlled via the patient’s handheld remote control. Patients turn on the device before going to bed to gently stimulate the throat muscles while sleeping.

Dr. Lacey focuses on the care and management of diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid and sinuses, with an interest in pediatric ENT care, especially sleep-disordered breathing. He came to Brevard from Enloe Hospital in Chico, California.

Dr. Lacey served his Otolaryngology Residency at Tulane School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana. Dr. Lacey was a General Surgery Intern at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana.

He also earned his Doctor of Medicine from Tulane University School of Medicine and Master of Public Health in Health Systems Management from Tulane University School of Public Health. Dr. Lacey earned his Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Dr. Lacey is licensed to practice medicine in Florida. He was a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy and is a veteran of Operation Desert Storm. During his medical school residency, Dr. Lacey was a scuba diver and earned his PADI Open Water and Advanced Open Water Certification and his PADI Rescue Diver Certification.
