Philips Respironics Issues Voluntary Recall

Posted on Jun 16, 2021

** UPDATED JULY 22ND, 2021 9:45AM **

Philips Respironics announced a voluntary recall for Continuous and Non-Continuous Ventilators (certain CPAP, BiLevel PAP and Ventilator Devices) due to two issues related to the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam used in these devices. For information on the Recall Notice, a complete list of impacted products, and potential health risks, visit philips.com/src-update.

Cape Medical Supply is following the Philips-issued replacement plan. Philips has contacted patients and will be replacing their machines.

Cape Medical Supply will not be replacing machines, as this is a manufacturer issue. We expect a manufacturer update on this process by the end of July.
