Phillips Announces Voluntary Recall of Devices
Philips, a health technology company, issued a voluntary recall notification for certain sleep and respiratory care devices. The recall is to mitigate potential health risks related to the sound abatement foam component, which may degrade into particles which may enter the device’s air pathway and be ingested or inhaled by the user, and the foam may off-gas certain chemicals. The recall pertains to specific Philips Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP), Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), and mechanical ventilator devices. View all affected devices. If you have a patient that uses one of the affected devices, please discuss their continued treatment options with them.
