PHILLIPS SLEEP APNEA MACHINE RECALL
It was announced recently that Phillips has recalled a lot of their sleep apnea machines. Apparently the abatement foam is causing some kind of cancer. I contacted the VA today to see what I should do and I was told to stop using it immediately until they come up with a solution. I'm sure they have some kind of contract with Phillips so the turn around time could take quite a while. I am concerned because I have severe sleep apnea and it's probably the reason I got a PM in the first place. I was told I have an average of 111 episodes per hour and the maximum was 124. Off the charts as you can see! Sigh......
Anyhow here is the link in case anyone is interested. I would follow up with your Primary Care doc to see what you should do. Good luck to us all!
