Positive Air, Inc. (SleepRestfully.com) Removes All Chinese Manufactured CPAP from Website
December 01, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsSleepRestfully.com by Positive Air, Inc. of Houston, Texas, a leader in the Sleep Apnea equipment and portable oxygen concentrator industry since 1971, announced today that they have ceased to sell any CPAP Machines or CPAP Mask manufactured in China. Charles Goldberg, Chief Operating Officer of Positive Air, Inc. stated, “It seems that recently CPAP machines and mask manufactured in China have started to show up on the market in the United States. Small, quiet and reasonably priced many people are buying them for travel or as a second CPAP. In many cases you are not even aware that the machine or mask is manufactured in China. We are as guilty of ignoring this fact as anyone has been. Until now we have carried a very popular small silent type of machine you can find on many other online sites. With all the recalls of Chinese made items recently you have to wonder if it is smart to use one of these machines or mask. Let’s face it; you are inhaling air distributed through this machine made in China, into six foot tubing made in China and possibly to a mask again made in China. You got to wonder if the paint in the CPAP’s housing contains a high level of lead.”
Mr. Goldberg went on to state, “Many well known machines manufactured in places like the United States, Australia, New Zealand and France are just as small, just as reasonably priced and would let you sleep at night more soundly since you won’t have to worry about inhaling lead. We have thought long and hard about this issue prior to taking this action and believe it is in your best interest for you to give it a thought before you purchase a Chinese manufactured CPAP or mask.”
