Urgent Message:

Philips has issued a recall of most of its cpap, autopap, bipap, and asv devices.  Please review their website to see if you are affected:

https://www.usa.philips.com/healthcare/e/sleep/communications/src-update

Resmed units, including S10, are NOT affected by this recall.

If you are affected, please understand that our information is limited. We know only that a foam used in the devices may break down and release particles and gases which may be harmful. We know that this information is distressing to many of you.

Please stop using any ozone-based cpap cleaning machines (so clean, for example) immediately, no matter the cpap device you are using. These cleaners seem to be a clear trigger of foam breakdown.

As best I can weigh pros and cons, here is what I am suggesting:  In some conditions, we suggest you continue positive airway pressure:

  • atrial fibrillation or congestive heart failure
  • moderate or severe sleep apnea
  • use of cpap for CDL license
  • if cpap prevents excessive daytime sleepiness or drowsy driving.
  • If you are using positive airway pressure for respiratory failure- including an AVAPS device, or some forms of bipap for the obesity hypoventilation syndrome,

In other settings, like mild sleep apnea (AHI 5-15), without any of the above, we suggest you stop positive airway pressure until further notice.

Keep in touch with your DME company to determine when your device might be fixed. Please check back here for updates. I am working on ways to make use of the affected devices at least somewhat safer until materials or devices can be replaced. You can register with Phillips starting Thursday at the following hotline: 877-907-7508
