We want to look after you, so if someone residing at your premises depends on electrically operated life support equipment, we need to know and your retailer needs to know.
The following types of equipment have been classified as life support equipment:
- Oxygen concentrator
- Intermittent peritoneal dialysis machines
- Kidney dialysis machine
- Chronic positive airways pressure respirators (CPAP)
- Crigler najjar syndrome phototherapy equipment
