In September 2022, Philips issued an informative warning and urgent medical device correction regarding face and nasal masks on some sleep and respiratory devices. This notice is due to concerns that certain masks containing magnetic headgear clips may pose a risk of serious injury for some people with implanted medical devices. You, your household members, caregivers and bed partners with implanted devices may be affected.
Call Philips at 877-387-3311 for additional help and support.
