Ensuring you have the right Philips Respironics masks for your patients

Rest Assured

Patient safety is our top priority. 

Magnetic components are used in certain Philips Respironics masks to support your patients by making their experience easier and more comfortable. However, if your patient has an implanted metallic device, or is in close proximity to someone who has an implanted metallic device, you should consider other Philips Respironics masks to support their needs.


In 2022, Philips Respironics voluntarily updated the contraindication and warning labeling for masks with magnets. As an industry-leading practice, we strengthened the already present warnings and added contraindications for individuals who have, or are in close proximity to, a metallic implanted device.

Magnets can make using sleep therapy masks easier

Magnets on certain Philips Respironics masks are designed to:
  • Help patients effortlessly attach or reattach headgear
  • Help patients correctly assemble their mask
  • Enhance ease of use


Explore the range of Philips Respironics masks so you can rest assured knowing that your patients have the mask that is right for them.

Masks with magnets may not be right for every patient

Masks with magnets may be the right choice for many, but not all, of your sleep apnea patients. Patients should not use a mask with magnets if they:
  • Have an implanted metallic device
  • Are in close proximity to someone who has an implanted metallic device

Find the mask that is right for your patient

Philips Respironics offers a comprehensive portfolio of state-of-the-art sleep apnea masks that combine performance and comfort – with and without magnets. Explore the Philips Respironics portfolio to find the right mask for your patient.
