Advice from the FDA on medical devices

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has created a booklet for those who use medical devices that require electricity to operate, Home Use Devices: How to Prepare For and Handle Power Outages for Medical Devices that Require Electricity. This could be especially useful for people with disabilities. In the event of a power outage, this booklet serves as "an established plan to obtain and organize your medical device information, take necessary actions so that you can continue to use your device, have the necessary supplies for the operation of your device, and know where to go or what to do during a power outage."
