cpapApproximately 25 per cent of men and 10 per cent of women suffer from disturbed sleep caused by breathing difficulties. As we age the numbers increase, with one in three older men suffering from sleep apnoea.

In the 1970’s, Colin Sullivan, an Australian physician working at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, cobbled together a machine from a diving mask, vacuum cleaner engine, and plastic tubes. His first trial patient was cured of a severe sleeping disorder overnight, and the sleep apnoea machine was born.

Low cost importing

Unlike most countries, Australia has a zero per cent import duty rate for sleep apnoea machines; Platinum Freight Management knows of how to also lower your GST assessment. The only Government fee that is required to be paid by yourself is the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service lodgement fee of $40.20 (parcel post) or $55.20 (airfreight).
