NAVAHCS Facility Update
Your safety is our top priority. VA has learned of the recall on some Philips Respironics Positive Airway Pressure devices (CPAP or BiPAP) used for sleep apnea. If you do not have a Philips Respironics device, then this information does not pertain to you.
Philips Respironics recently recalled some CPAP and BiPAP devices due to break down of the foam used to reduce sound and vibration. While in use, recalled devices may have very small foam particles break loose and travel through the air hose. This break down may be related to exposure to extreme heat and humidity or the use of unapproved cleaning devices, therefore do not use ozone or ultraviolet related cleaners per the Food and Drug Administration recommendations.
VA requests that you register your device through the Philips Respironics patient portal at: https://www.philipssrcupdate.expertinquiry.com or call 877-907-7508. Philips Respironics will send a replacement device. This may take several months.
If you notice any problems with your device or any new respiratory symptoms, contact your care team immediately. Otherwise, you should continue to use the device as prescribed and clean it using the manufacturer’s instructions.
VA is currently working with the manufacturer on a solution and will keep you informed as additional information and guidance becomes available.
