Medical Device Field Safety Notice (outside of U.S.)


Philips Respironics Sleep and Respiratory Care devices


FSN 2021-05-A & FSN 2021-06-A

Information for clinicians, all in one place

 

Patient safety is our top priority


In June 2021, after discovering a potential health risk related to the foam used for sound deafening in certain CPAP, BiPAP and Mechanical Ventilator devices, Philips Respironics issued a voluntary Field Safety Notice (outside the US).


We are committed to supporting you and the clinical community through the full remediation process and have developed a range of resources to help you care for your patients that can be accessed in the links below.


We want to make sure you receive timely information on both the measures we take and the progress we are making. We update this page regularly with details of testing reports and clinical studies on the potential harm associated with the foam or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), where we are in the remediation process, as well as summaries of the information your patients are receiving from us, so please check it regularly.


If you have any questions, or would like more information on the content provided, please reach out to your Philips Account Manager.


We thank you for your patience as we work to restore your trust.
