*Phillips Recall of CPAP, BiPAP and Ventilators:
Philips Respironics announced a voluntary recall for Continuous and Non-Continuous Ventilators (certain CPAP, BiLevel PAP and Ventilator Devices) due to two issues related to the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam used in these devices. For information on the Recall Notice, a complete list of impacted products, and potential health risks, visit philips.com/src-update.

I Need a Machine:
If you have been disagnosed with sleep apnea, have a valid prescription and cannot afford therapy (no insurance, fixed income), we can add you to our wait list to receive a refubished sleep apnea machine. To be added to our waitlist, please call Diane Grant at 902-443-8141 x28 or email email@example.com. You will need to do three things:
1. Provide us with a signed waiver form - you can download it HERE
2. Provide us with a valid prescription from your doctor (an RX)
3. Agree that if you accept a machine from the Lung Association of Nova Scotia and no longer use that machine, you will donate it back
