For millions of people nationwide, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is their primary treatment for sleep apnea. Unfortunately, CPAP machines and other related equipment are notoriously expensive. Patients without sufficient medical insurance often end up spending hundreds of dollars on their CPAP machines and find it difficult to follow their treatment plans simply due to cost. A recent shortage of these devices has further exacerbated this issue, making it even more challenging for patients to receive treatment.
However, if you’re struggling to pay for your CPAP machine or supplies, there are more affordable options. Advanced Homecare offers used CPAP machines that have been professionally refurbished, cleaned, and are still in good working order.
Where Do We Get Our Refurbished CPAP Machines?
When a person discontinues CPAP therapy or no longer requires treatment after just a short period, their CPAP machine is usually still functioning like new. Some people find alternative ways to manage their sleep apnea, while others initially prescribed CPAP therapy may be changed to BiPAP to better suit their needs. In these cases, we can sanitize and refurbish the machines to give them new life and offer a more affordable option for patients.
Purchasing a refurbished CPAP machine is very different from purchasing a used machine from a person directly. Used machines may be at the end of their lifespan, not working correctly, or not thoroughly cleaned. Our refurbished CPAP machines are gently used, professionally sanitized, and tested to ensure they are suitable for continued use. This process allows us to ensure that you get reliable sleep therapy and peace of mind knowing that you are receiving a good-quality CPAP device.
CPAP Machine Shortage and Recent Recall
Recently, CPAP shortages have further stressed the need for more affordable and accessible treatment options. On June 14th, 2021, Philips announced the recall of several Respironics brand BiLevel PAP & CPAP sleep apnea devices. According to the company, the foam used for sound insulation in some devices degrades and may release debris and toxic chemicals into the air in the tubing. The recall has added to the CPAP machine shortage and made wait times for orders significantly longer.
For sufferers of moderate to severe sleep apnea, the consequences of waiting too long for their supplies can be detrimental. Purchasing pre-owned machines could be the help we need to get out of the shortage and help more patients afford their sleep apnea treatment.
