We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Upper Airway Stimulation for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
The Hospitals of Providence is the first hospital in El Paso, Texas to provide the Inspire Therapy, a breakthrough treatment option to treat obstructive sleep apnea. This therapy is considered one of the top medical innovations of the year. Unlike CPAP,
this treatment works from inside the body with the patient's natural breathing process.
Inspire Therapy Can Help
Inspire therapy is FDA approved and clinically proven to significantly reduce sleep apnea events and improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Our specialists can evaluate your health and perform an examination of your airway
to determine if this therapy might be a suitable CPAP alternative for you.
How It Works
This treatment works completely inside your body with your natural breathing process to treat obstructive sleep apnea. When you are asleep, the implant provides a mild stimulation to the hypoglossal nerve, a nerve that controls the movement
of the tongue and other muscles in the airway. By stimulating the nerve, the tongue and other tissues move out of the airway so that you can breathe during sleep.
Is Inspire Therapy Right For You?
You may be a candidate for this breakthrough technology if you:
Have moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea
Are unable to tolerate or benefit from CPAP
Are not significantly overweight
Are over the age of 22
The first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our specialists to determine if this therapy is an option for you. Call 866-934-3627 to find an Inspire specialist today.
