WhidbeyHealth’s Sleep Care was notified that Philips has issued a recall on many of their CPAP and BiPAP devices, many of which our patients use. We would like to inform our Sleep Care patients and community of the recall so action can be taken as needed.
If you currently use a Philips CPAP or BiPAP device, please visit Philips’ website to register your machine and see if you qualify for the recall. You can visit the Philips website here: https://www.philipssrcupdate.expertinquiry.com/.
