Information for patients and caregivers who have received a DreamStation 2 as a replacement for your existing CPAP device

Ozone and UV light cleaning products are not currently approved cleaning methods for sleep apnea devices or masks and should not be used.

The DreamStation 2 AutoCPAP Advanced was designed with your comfort and ease in mind. It is easy to use and features a Ramp Plus setting that will allow you to pick a starting pressure that is comfortable to help you fall asleep.

We understand that any change to your therapy device can cause concern. We are working with your homecare provider/DME to ensure proper and smooth replacement device setup. We have a patient management software solution that in many cases allows your homecare provider to access the prescription settings from your previous device. This means your replacement device will have comparable settings to your previous device.


Don’t forget to download the DreamMapper app to help track your progress, set goals and get helpful tips. 

A note about the foam used in your DreamStation 2


While affected devices contained a polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam component, the sound abatement foam in all new and recertified devices is a silicone foam that has met all applicable industry testing standards, including particulate and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emissions testing, and is authorized as part of our remediation.

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in connection with Philips’ efforts to remediate the recalled Respironics Sleep and Respiratory Care devices (each, an “Affected Device”).  To expedite these efforts, Philips in many cases is (or will be) providing a replacement device (an “Advanced Exchange”) in advance of the return of an Affected Device. By accepting the Advanced Exchange, you are agreeing to return your Affected Device to Philips so that, in many cases, Philips can expeditiously refurbish the returned Affected Device to help ensure another user receives a replacement device sooner.  This is consistent with the FDA’s direction for a prompt remediation. 

Upon receipt of Advanced Exchange, please follow the instructions that you receive regarding the return of your Affected Device to Philips.  Specifically, it is important that you promptly return your Affected Device. Your returned Affected Device will either be repaired to replace the foam insulation with an approved insulation, or will be destroyed.   

Please note that in order to effectuate the Recall Plan it is necessary that you return your Affected device promptly, consistent with FDA regulations. By participating in the Advanced Exchange or receiving a remediated device, you acknowledge and agree that the foam insulation will be removed and may be discarded, and that your Affected Device may be destroyed or refurbished. Thank you again for your assistance in this matter.
