On June 14, 2021, Philips Respironics issued a voluntary recall on specific brands of their continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) machines, and ventilators. Philips Respironics has established a registration process that allows patients, users, or caregivers to look up their device’s serial number and initiate a claim if their unit is affected.
