Notice of Recall on CPAP and BiPAP Devices

Dear MedEquip customer,                                                                                          

On Monday, June 14th, Philips Respironics, the manufacturer of your CPAP or BiPAP unit, announced a recall on certain CPAP and BiLevel PAP units due to two issues related to the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam used in these devices:

  1. PE-PUR foam may degrade into particles which may enter the device’s air pathway and be ingested or inhaled by the user, and
  2. the PE-PUR foam may off-gas certain chemicals. The foam degradation may be worsened by use of unapproved cleaning methods, such as ozone (see FDA safety communication on use of ozone cleaners), and off-gassing may occur during initial operation and may possibly continue throughout the device’s useful life.  A complete list of impacted products is available on

As part of this recall, Philips Respironics has contracted with a 3rd party organization to manage the repair/replacement of your device. They have setup a toll free number, 877-907-7508 to handle your request. You can also get support at  If you need assistance with contacting Philips Respironics, please do not hesitate to call the MedEquip main number (270-780-2655) and someone will assist you.

Devices that are impacted include Dreamstation 1 CPAP and BiLevel units manufactured prior to April 26, 2021.  The date of manufacture can be found on the underside of your unit.  Dreamstation 2 devices are not impacted by this recall.
