Voluntary Recall of CPAP/BIPAP
On September 6, 2022, Philips Respironics announced a voluntary recall of over 17 million CPAP/BIPAP masks that are used by people living with sleep apnea or other respiratory health issues. The recall pertains to people using these masks who have implanted metallic medical devices or other metallic objects in their body. The recall is due to risks related to the magnets on the masks that may affect some implanted medical devices or implanted metal objects.
Five mask types are affected by this recall: the DreamWisp, DreamWear Full Face Mask (not nasal mask), Amara View, Wisp and Wisp Youth masks.
If you believe this recall may pertain to you, please call and schedule an appointment to discuss and formulate a plan moving forward.
