Update on Philips Respironics Recall
Posted on March 23, 2022 |
Since the recall of Philips Respironics respiratory devices last year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been gathering information and listening to feedback from a variety of sources, including the people who were most impacted by the recall - the patients. The FDA then shared that information with Philips Respironics to emphasize that there are some people who depend on their respiratory equipment more than others, that there are great risks associated with certain people not using their respiratory devices as prescribed by their doctors. Because of this awareness, Philips has established an online portal-site and a phone number so that patients can get placed on a “prioritized placement” list. That portal can be accessed here, or by calling 1-877-907-7508.
