Philips issued a recall for 3-4 million machines due to potential long-term health consequences due to the deterioration of the foam used to dampen the machine’s sound. Philips is advising patients to stop using their devices at this time.
For patients with severe OSA and/or other chronic health conditions, and cannot stop the usage of their PAP device: Philips is advising patients who continue to use their machines that they should manually clean the unit and parts according to the Usage and Maintenance Manual provided with their units due to the fact that the health risks related to this recall may be exacerbated by using ozone-based cleaning methods. An in-line CPAP filter may be used with the device to capture any potential foam debris.

You will require the serial number of the unit underneath the PAP unit.
If you have questions and would like to contact Philips directly, please call 877-907-7508.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common sleep disorder, and it is far more prevalent then most people realize. When left untreated it can have serious health consequences. Snoring, excessive daytime fatigue and memory problems are all common symptoms associated with OSA. Learn more about OSA here.
PAP (Positive Airway Pressure) and CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) are the most successful treatments for OSA, and avoid the risks and side affects of surgery. Learn more about CPAP here and if it is right for you.
