2. Writing to a technology CEO - This link describes how you might find email addresses for a technology CEO online. Alternatively, you can always draft a snail mail letter and mail it. Part of the shortage is due to a lack of microchip "wafers" that Resmed has access to. Writing a technology CEO to encourage them to donate wafers to the cause might start to make a big difference.

3. Contact your local media outlet - Raising awareness with your local media outlets is always a great way to have an impact and encourage change.
