Recently, Philips issued a recall notice for some of their  Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, BiLevel Positive Airway Pressure devices, and Mechanical Ventilators due to potential health risks from the polyester-based polyurethane foam used in their devices. Specifically, the foam may degrade into particles that may be inhaled by the user.  The potential risks of degraded foam exposure are listed on the manufacturer’s website.

In response to the recall, the ATS’s Sleep & Respiratory Neurobiology Assembly developed recommendations for sleep and critical care medicine professionals, which is available here.

Below, please find resources to help you navigate patient care and address inquiries. We will share updates here as further details become available.
