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.
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
"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.
