Phillips Recall

All sleep practices across the United States have been affected by the Phillips/Respironics recall of PAP devices announced on June 14, 2021. We are working diligently with the Academy of Sleep Medicine and American Thoracic Society, as well as other centers and durable medical equipment providers, to figure out the best solutions to help our patients that have been affected by this voluntary recall.
