Latest Update from Philips Respironics' on CPAP Machines
The Philips Respironics CPAP Machines Recall has impacted many of our GoCPAP customers. Our goal is to keep you informed on all updates as they become available. Here is the latest letter from Philips Respironics regarding the recalled CPAP machines.
The company expects to repair or replace all defective devices within 12 months. Additional details regarding clinical insights for physician guidance, repair and replace timeline, and increasing machine manufacturing are discussed in the letter.
Since Philips Respironics’ announced the recall of the machines in June, the recommendation for users is to STOP using these units immediately. This resulted in a high volume of CPAP machine purchases. At the same time, people that qualified for a replacement through their insurance claimed a replacement and others were able to obtain a loaned machine. This led to a low inventory of CPAP machines across the United States.
For the last few months, GoCPAP has made every effort to have machines available for purchase and we have kept our prices as low as possible. Our goal is to help people that are out of options find a CPAP machine that may be used now as they wait for Philips Respironics’ to offer a replacement.
