Default CPAP machine

Is there a store nearby the villages that sells CPAP equipment?

I believe Personal Pulmonary care, 977 Del mar Dr, 8566-726-9363 does this, at least they did in the past.

That address reminds me of the old Apria address. If you're jammed up I have some stuff that I could loan you and then you could replace it.

I get everything through Amazon or at Dr. Diaz's office in Leesburg. I won't spend a wooden Nuckel at Apria ever again.

OP, specifically what do you need and do you need it to sleep tonight? If not just order through Amazon. I try to check back later. Good Luck.

OK, I msde some assumptions in my original reply, as noted above we need more info. If you are after masks, hoses, etc, yes personal pulmonary will help you and they are quite good. If you are after an additional CPAP machine, they may be able to help, my wife's died, and before the 5 year Medicare replacement, so it was our nickel, we were able to get a refurbished unit. If you are over 65, you can get a prescription from your doctor, and go the personal pulmonary for a CPAP machine that will be suitable for you needs.
A word of caution if you are going for a used unit, these MUST be reprogrammed for YOUR specific needs.

It makes you wonder if Skunky is OK or not???? Going without a CPAP is rough when you are accustomed to having one available. You did your best as usual VT. You are the man!

Let's hope Skunky is in good shape!

I've gotten my machine and all supplies from NewAir out of Eustus, they come right to your house to deliver and setup the equipment. Supplies are mail ordered every 90 days.

Was it required that your pulmonary doctor issue a prescription (for you) to NewAir first?

American Home Patient has an office in Leesburg. You might need a script for a new machine.
FYI I just purchased a travel machine on Amazon - $259 and it was here in 7 days. (No script required)
Good luck!

In order to have Medicare or other insurance pay for your supplies, you'll need an annual prescription from your pulmonologist.

I have a 2013 BiPap machine and a few supplies that are gathering dust. If anyone is interested, PM me.

If you are a veteran, check in with the VA clinic. I get a lot of my supplies through the clinic.

I suggest heavily from my own experience, please do not us Apria for any of your equipment or supplies or anything unless you want to deal with neverending problem solving on your end. They are not good at all in many categories of doing business properly. Take Care & good luck.
