Philips/Respironics Recall Information June 2021

Philips has recalled a majority of the first-generation Dreamstation products issued prior to April 2021 due to risks involved from polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam components which may degrade into particles that may enter the airway, ingested or inhaled when using your sleep apnea device.  In addition, the use of ozone cleaning machines (So Clean) may worsen this degradation.  Dr. Polito and the staff of the The Santa Barbara Sleep Clinic just learned of this recall and will try to post up-to-date information for you as we determine what can be done to remedy the issue.
