Medical Device Recall

June 16, 2021

Below is an important recall announcement for our pulmonary patients.

Philips Respironics is recalling the below devices due to two (2) issues.

  1. PE-PUR foam may degrade into particles which may enter the device’s air pathway and be ingested or inhaled by the user, these particles may have short-term and long-term health effects.
  2. The PE-PUR foam may off-gas certain chemicals. The foam degradation may be exacerbated by use of unapproved cleaning methods, such as ozone and off-gassing may occur during operation.
