ResMed makes ‘unprecedented’ donation

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

SAN DIEGO – ResMed has donated more than 10,000 CPAP devices to the American Sleep Apnea Association’s CPAP assistance program (CAP), the association announced June 30. “A donation of this magnitude is unprecedented,” stated Tracy Nasca, executive director of the ASAA in a press release. CAP provides a package containing a CPAP device, tubing, filters and mask to patients who otherwise would not be able to afford them. CAP, which was launched in 2010, relies on the public and commercial sleep industry to help with equipment donations. “Supply has always been our challenge, but thanks to ResMed, we will now be in a position to increase the reach of our program,” Nasca said. ASAA encourages others to provide product or funding for the tubing and masks, etc., needed to complete the packages.
