A Battery Backup Power, Inc. uninterruptible power supply (UPS) provides warning and backup power to a CPAP machine during power outages.
On March 13th, 2015 Johnie S. received his Battery Backup Power, Inc. (www.batterybackuppower.com) 1500 VA / 900 watt pure sine wave uninterruptible power supply for his Remstar Auto/A-Flex M Series CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine.
His review on the Battery Backup Power, Inc. Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/batterybackuppower) reads as follows, “5 Stars – I just received my battery backup for my CPAP machine and I am grateful that now when the power goes out at night I have a little warning before I’m gasping for air.”
Johnie is referring to the BBP-1500A-PSW-LI (www.backupbatterypower.com/products/BBP-1500A-PSW-LI) uninterruptible power supply’s audible alarm meant to wake him from his sleep and the 23 minutes of backup battery power automatically provided to his CPAP machine when the power outage occurs.
Uninterruptible power supplies are more commonly thought of as accessories for computers and servers, not necessarily as potentially lifesaving devices that accompany home medical equipment such as non-portable CPAP machines, nebulizers, compressors, oxygen concentrators, suction machines, and other electronically powered devices.
This viewpoint is starting to change as power grids across the United States face increasing weather, financial, and reliability challenges accompanied by in-home healthcare growth due to the aging baby boomer population. In response, Medicare Part B durable medical equipment (DME) coverage may cover or soon cover certain medical grade uninterruptible power supplies for home use like those offered by Battery Backup Power, Inc. (www.batterybackuppower.com) when prescribed by a doctor.
Battery Backup Power, Inc. (www.batterybackuppower.com) is based in Costa Mesa, California. The company specializes in standard and custom extended run time uninterruptible power supplies for IT systems, 3D printers, laboratory instrumentation, medical devices, race tracks, security systems and other custom uses.
