Med-Care Diabetic & Medical Supplies, Inc., a leading wellness company founded on the highest principles of patient care and service, announced today a donation of more than 150 refurbished Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines to the American Sleep Apnea Association’s (ASAA) CPAP Assistance Program.
“For an individual with sleep apnea, a CPAP machine is the gift of a good night’s sleep, which we hope will positively impact other areas of their lives.”
Sleep apnea, often a chronic condition characterized by brief pauses in breathing during sleep, is estimated to affect 22 million Americans. CPAP therapy is the most widely used and most effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. CPAP machines help people with sleep apnea breathe more easily during sleep by increasing air pressure in upper airways.
"We’re thankful to Med-Care for supporting the ASAA’s CPAP Assistance Program,” said Kalimah Ashby, CPAP Assistance Program coordinator of the ASAA. “The ASAA is able to provide gently used CPAP devices to individuals in need due to generous device and supplies donations from organizations like Med-Care. These donations help bridge the gap between diagnosis and treatment, while keeping usable equipment from filling already overcrowded landfills."
“The management of sleep apnea has been revolutionized by CPAP devices and we’re happy make a donation to ASAA’s CPAP Assistance Program,” said Dr. Steven Silverman, founder and CEO of Med-Care. “For an individual with sleep apnea, a CPAP machine is the gift of a good night’s sleep, which we hope will positively impact other areas of their lives.”
Med-Care’s equipment donation includes top tier brands such as Philips Respironics System One.
