Provincial Respiratory Outreach Program (PROP) provides a wide variety of equipment and respiratory supplies to our clients. We understand clients have different needs and therefore supplies used throughout the year will vary, sometimes considerably. There are, however, a few things that all clients can do to help keep costs under control and PROP is requesting our client’s participation to keep supply costs balanced. PROP strongly encourages clients to have client specific ‘back up’ supplies. For example: back up bi-level mask, back up hoses, filters for your bi-level or ventilator, ventilator circuits and tracheostomy tubes.
Having supplies in the home is essential. Extra supplies are a crucial part of day-to-day living as well as proper emergency planning. The next time a PROP Respiratory Therapist is at your home discuss your supply needs and concerns with a PROP RT. As always, PROP looks to our clients for feedback, concerns and ideas. Please share your supply inquiries with us.
