Philips Respironics issued a voluntary recall notification for certain continuous and non-continuous ventilators (CPAP, BiPAP and ventilator devices)

Essentia Health is aware of and closely monitoring a voluntary recall notification issued by Philips Respironics regarding certain CPAPs, BiPAPs and ventilators. This recall stems from the potential for degraded foam particles to enter the airflow system in these devices. The foam is used to reduce noise from the devices. Philips has not received any reports of serious harm.

At Essentia, the safety and well-being of our patients is our highest priority. We understand that our patients have questions about the impact of this recall. We encourage them, or others responsible for their care, to register their device on the Philips website. They also can call Philips at (877) 907-7508. Registration is the fastest way to get the latest information from the company, which is working to address all affected devices.

Patients also can contact their primary or specialty care provider about potential next steps.

Essentia Health will provide more information on this issue as it becomes available to us.

Philips Respironics is working to contact consumers who have purchased its devices.

Please note that ResMed devices are not impacted by this recall.
