A potentially dangerous defect resulted in millions of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP machines) to be recalled in June 2021.

While Philips Respironics, the company who manufactures these CPAP machines, is offering to fix or replace these machines, the wait times have been extended into September 2022. That is a long time for users who rely on these machines to survive to wait. The only other option is to purchase a machine out of pocket from another manufacturer.

Here is a list of the recalled devices:

  • E30 (Emergency Use Authorization)
  • DreamStation ASV
  • DreamStation (ST, AVAPS)
  • SystemOne (ASV4)
  • C Series (ASV, S/T, AVAPS)
  • OmniLab Advanced Plus (In-Lab Titration Device)
  • SystemOne (Q Series)
  • DreamStation (CPAP, Auto CPAP, BiPAP)
  • DreamStation GO (CPAP, APAP)
  • Dorma 400,500 (CPAP)
  • REMStar SE Auto (CPAP)
  • Trilogy100
  • Trilogy 200
  • A-Series BiPAP Hybrid (A30) – not marketed in the United States
  • A-Series BiPAP V30 (Auto)
  • Garbin Plus, Aeris, LifeVent
  • A-Series BiPAP A40
