Important Update from AdaptHealth about the Philips Recall
At AdaptHealth, your health and safety are our biggest priority.
As you know, Philips recently issued a recall for 3-4 million CPAP machines and ventilators due to potential long-term health consequences of the foam used to dampen the machine’s sound.
At this time, Philips is advising patients to stop using their devices at this time and contact their healthcare provider for next steps. For any patients with severe OSA or other chronic health conditions, we strongly recommend discussing any change in therapy with your physician prior to a change. Philips is also advising patients who continue to use their machines that they should manually clean them due to the fact that the health risks related to this recall may be exacerbated by using ozone-based cleaning methods.
AdaptHealth and its affiliates are following Philips’ recall guidance. Philips will be handling all machine replacements and has created a registration process that allows you to look up your device serial number and begin a claim if the unit is affected.
We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you and will do our best to keep you fully informed as more information is available. If you wish to contact Philips directly, please call 877-907-7508.
