The Ministry of Health (Secretaría de Salud) grants the services with a great limitation of resources so the patient is forced to get them by their own means.
There are approximately 60 patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome who require a device called CPAP (Continuous positive airways pressure) to correct their breathing during sleep.
Patients with Sleep Apnea have a non-repairing superficial sleep that affects their daily physical activity.In these cases, the CPAP device is indicated to correct the air intake adequately during sleep.
CPAP is the treatment of choice in patients with moderate to severe symptomatic apnea.
The patients of the Ministry of Health do not have the resources to acquire or rent a device and many times they can not be descharged of the hospital because they depend on the device.
The project Sleep Apnea consists of acquiring 60 new or remanufactured CPAP devices with an approximate cost of 42,000 dlls.
The CPAP equipment would be delivered to the patient in loan quality by signing the loan agreement document
The Ministry of Health of Nayarit through the Pneumology Service would contribute to the control and monitoring of patients.
The acquisition of accessories would be at the patient's expense.
The CPAP will be returned to the Rotary club once it is not necessary (improvement, death, etc.) or misuse of it.
