Philips Respironics Australia and New Zealand Update 2021
30 April 2021
Philips has provided an important update regarding proactive efforts to address identified issues with a component in certain products of their Sleep & Respiratory Care portfolio.
Philips has determined from user reports and testing that sound abatement foam used in a number of Philips sleep and respiratory care devices may degrade under certain circumstances.
This occurrence may be influenced by factors including use of unapproved cleaning methods such as ozone, environmental conditions involving high humidity and temperature, and age of device.
To date, Philips has not received reports of serious patient harm related to this issue.
