Recall: Philips Respironics
AWAYK Health has been informed of the voluntary recall issued by Philips Respironics on 06/14/2021 due to the possible health risks related to the sound abatement foam component that is used to dampen device sound and vibration during routine operation.
Under certain circumstances, the foam may degrade into particles which may enter the device’s air pathway and be ingested or inhaled by the user. The foam degradation may be exacerbated by environmental conditions of higher temperatures and humidity or by unauthorized cleaning methods.
Philips is recommending all users to discontinue usage and reach out to your physician to obtain his/her medical advice to determine if the benefit of continuing therapy with your device outweighs the risk identified in the recall notice.
Philips has recommended that customers and patients do not use ozone-related cleaning products and adhere to their device Instructions for Use for approved cleaning methods.
