Philips Respironic's Voluntary Recall

Recently, Philips issued a recall for 3-4 million machines and WILL BE REPAIRING OR REPLACING THEM. Philips has retained a company to manage this directly for patients.

The recall for CPAP/BIPAP machines is due to potential long-term health consequences of the foam used to dampen the machine’s sound. At this time, Philips is advising patients to stop using their devices and contact their doctor to discuss any change in therapy.

Philips is also advising patients who continue to use their machines that they should manually clean them due to the fact that the health risks related to this recall may be exacerbated by using ozone-based cleaning methods.

Philips has created a registration process that will allow you to look up your device serial number and begin a claim if the unit is affected. This process is available at
