Sleep apnea support
Did You Know?
An increasing number of New Brunswickers are being diagnosed with sleep apnea and require breathing machines (CPAPs) to relieve their symptoms.
What is sleep apnea?
In simple terms, throughout the night you breathe quietly, you snore, you have a pause in your breathing, you gasp for a breath and then you start breathing again. Most people have dozens or hundreds of sleep apnea events a night that results in the same number of interruptions of sleep and oxygen intake.
We know this is a serious illness.
We are aware of the need of more machines in our province and we care about the health of those with sleep apnea. For this reason, we are collecting and re-distributing as many donated CPAP machines as we can. We want to ensure that New Brunswickers are getting the quality sleep they need to stay healthy.
To help others across our province with sleep apnea, we are asking that you consider donating your used CPAP:
(Under 5 years old and NOT a Respironics or Philips product) to help us grow this program
To make your equipment donation please fill out the Respiratory Equipment Donations Form.
Bring or mail the equipment and the form to:
- NB Lung: 65 Brunswick St. Fredericton, NB E3B 1G5
If you need support to obtain a CPAP machine for yourself through Social Assistance, please see:
NB Lung has been helping New Brunswickers breathe easier since 1933.
Thank you for your support!
