Medical Device Safety Notice

Philips Respironics devices for sleep and respiratory therapy

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


In June 2021, Philips Respironics issued a voluntary Field Safety Notice (outside the US) following awareness of a potential health hazard associated with the foam used in certain CPAP, BiPAP and mechanical ventilators.

We recognize the significant impact of this Field Safety Notice on our patients, business customers and clinical teams. That's why we've developed tools and resources to help you through the proofreading process. These materials can be found on our patient, business partner and clinical team pages.

Our goal is to complete the repair and replacement program for the majority of registered patients by December 2022. We're making steady progress, always recognizing that things can't move fast enough for patients waiting for a repair or replacement device.

We post regular updates on our efforts through this website and monthly emails, including information about your replacement device(s).



Ozone cleaners, as well as UV light cleaning products, are not currently approved and must not be used as cleaning methods for sleep apnea devices and masks.


The products listed below are affected by the Field Safety Notice:

CPAP and BiLevel PAP machines

All affected devices manufactured before April 26, 2021, all device serial numbers

Which products are not affected and why?


Products not affected may contain other soundproofing foams as new materials and technologies become available over time. Additionally, due to the design of the device, the soundproofing foam may be located in a different location on non-affected devices.
