Program Gives Nova Scotians with Sleep Apnea Easier Access to CPAP Machines

The Lung Association of Nova Scotia has been running its Sleep Apnea Refurbishment Program for almost 10 years, reports CTV News Atlantic.

“We collect gently-used sleep apnea machines and we refurbish them with the help of Dalhousie University School of Health Sciences,” explains Donaldson.

“The machines come to us; we dispose, discard any disposal parts on the machine,” says Dalhousie University student Megan Butler. “We clean them, we disinfect them. We use our clean device to sterilize the machines.”
