Philips' CPAP & Bi-PAP Recalls

Philips Medical Product Issues

On June 15, 2021, Philips recalled over 3 million CPAP, Bi-Level PAP and mechanical ventilator devices for potential health risks related to the sound abatement foam. Most of the defective devices are in the first-generation DreamStation product family.  
Here's a list of all the recalled Philips devices.
The reason for the recall is due to the degradation of the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam in the devices may result in increased health risks. The foam may degrade into particles that are then ingested or inhaled by the user. The foam may also off-gas certain chemicals that are hazardous to the user.
