The provider supplies a patient with miscellaneous DME. Durable medical equipment is medical devices that a patient uses for medical purposes.

These devices are generally useless to the patient if they do not have the illness or injury that necessitates using the DME.
These may include special beds for the patient, catheters, and tubes, blood pressure, and glucose monitoring machines, or wheelchairs.
