URGENT!  Ventilator and Home Oxygen Capacity Survey; Due COB March 23


The HME industry is assessing the quantities of patient-ready respiratory equipment that can be utilized for COVID-19 within the United States.  It is imperative to get accurate information from as many suppliers as possible and we urge all OAMES members to participate in this national survey.  AAHomecare and VGM are asking suppliers who provide ventilators and/or home oxygen to take a brief survey on equipment on hand that can be used to treat new patients.  The data will be used to assess our industry’s capacity to help respond to this unprecedented emergency.  

Please be assured that your responses will only be shared in aggregate, without any identifying company information.  In order to avoid duplication, we ask for only ONE response per company (which will reflect all of the company locations and subsidiaries).  Additional demographic information is requested to help filter any accidental duplicate entries; this information will not be used for any other purpose. 

Take the survey here.  Please submit your responses by COB on Monday, March 23. Please contact AAHomecare’s Ashley Plauché  at or Kam Yuricich at OAMES at with any questions.
