Doug Needs Medical Equipment

Hi, my name is Doug and i suffer from Cystic Fibrosis (CF).  A genetic, chronic, life threatening condition that involves and daily ritual of multiple medications and intensive treatments. 

What is CF: http://www.cysticfibrosis.org.au/all/learn/

On a daily basis I will shift mucus buildup on my lungs using a PEP (Positive Experitory Pressure) device. This device, in short, puts positive pressure back on the airways allowing a pathway for the mucus to travel.

It has been proven in multiple studies that Hypertonic Saline inhaled via nebuliser is of a great benefit to CF sufferers as it hydrates the mucus and allows the mucus to shift more freely from the lungs. In recent studies, it has been provin benificial to combine hypertonic saline with PEP for enhanced results. 

Currently there is limited government funding for Cystic Fibrosis in Australia and currently is no subsidy for this type of medical equipment. 

I require a new nebulizer, The Pari E-Flow Rapid is the recommended device for combination treatments. This nebilizer is portable and allows for treatments to be completed where ever I am. Currently in Australia there is only 1 supplier for Pari products. I also require new PEP equipment for compatibility with the eflow.
