Doctor Works to Convert CPAP Machines to Respirators
Kathi Wilson, DDS, with the Center for Sleep Apnea and TMJ on Cascade Road started collecting CPAP machines, reports NBC 8 WOODTV.
Wilson, in conjunction with Missouri-based Hunter Engineering, is taking old CPAP machines that are no longer needed to make them to air respirators for doctors and nurses treating COVID-19 patients.
“Health care workers who are on the front lines are exposed to a higher load of virus. And therefore, they are getting sicker and really suffering more than if you were just exposed, say, at the grocery store,” Wilson said.
