Sleep Apnea Refurbishment Program

The Lung Association of Nova Scotia is actively looking for pre-owned Auto CPAP and BiPAP machines. An increasing number of Nova Scotians are being diagnosed with sleep apnea and require these night time breathing machines to relieve their symptoms. CPAP and BiPAP machines are very expensive (from $1,000 to $8,000) and many Nova Scotians cannot afford them. For this reason, we are trying to re-distribute as many donated machines as we can, free of charge! If you or someone you know has a CPAP or BiPAP machine please consider donating it today! *Ask us about tax receipts for newer-model machines! Please click HERE for a list of CPAP and BiPAP machines we accept  

To donate a CPAP or BiPAP machine, or to donate another respiratory machine (e.g. a pre-owned nebulizer or a new aerochamber), please contact Diane Grant at or by phone at (902) 443-8141 ext. 33 or at our toll-free number (888-566-5864). Please provide the following information on the machine:

  • Type of Machine
  • Make and Model
  • Age
  • Condition/Description
  • Sellers Name / Email and or Phone Number
