Information regarding Philips’ recall* (June 2021)
On Monday, June 14, 2021, Philips issued a U.S. voluntary recall notification and rest-of-world field safety notice (Philips June 2021 recall* below) for certain CPAP and ventilator devices. ResMed devices are not impacted by this recall and are safe for patients to use. ResMed devices use a different material for sound reduction than the material used by Philips.
Patient safety is ResMed’s most important goal.
An estimated 936 million people suffer from sleep apnoea or sleep suffocation – the upper airway closes off causing the body to jolt “awake” to take breaths throughout the night.1
ResMed provides: CPAP therapy that’s smaller, quieter, more comfortable, more connected.
- 4% fewer inpatient and emergency dept. visits for every nightly hour slept on CPAP2
- 39% lower all-cause mortality rate when treating sleep apnoea with CPAP3
