    No, some common Philips Respironics NIV BiPAP devices used here *are* affected - see the link.

    Hello Jaffa - I just googled Philips recall cpap machine and took it from there............some where on the Philips site I managed to find the place to put my serial number in and for me it came back "unaffected"................I'm sure it will be the same for BIPAPS also,

    Hubby got a letter about this today, fortunately he changed both of his machines in January so he's not affected.

    From Philips Healthcare UK.

    The popular A40 BiPAP machine is one on the list.

    The Philips announcement calls it a "recall notification (U.S. only) / field safety notice (International Markets)", so I assumed the devices were sold outside the US as well. All the better if that's not the case!

    started a topic Recall: Philips respiratory devices

    Recall: Philips respiratory devices

    Dear all,

    I've just learned about a recall/field safety notice of various Philips devices: some versions of their Philips Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), BiLevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiLevel PAP) devices, and Mechanical Ventilators. Apparently foam used in their construction is degrading and may have carcinogenic effects when inhaled.

    More information here: https://www.usa.philips.com/healthca...ons/src-update

    Hope it doesn't affect anyone on the forum, but thought I'd flag it up just in case.

    All the best,
    Peanut
