If your patient’s remediation is being managed by Philips Respironics, we ask that you share the following information with them
Register an affected device and keep patients updated on the status of their replacement device
If your patient has not yet registered their affected device, please direct them to do so through the Patient Portal to begin the remediation process.
If your CPAP or BiPAP patients have registered but have not yet received a replacement device, it may be because we need further information or consent from them. We ask that you encourage your patients to visit the Patient Portal regularly as their status may have been updated or there may be important reminders for information needed to complete their order.
The prompts they may see are unique to their affected device and personal information, and may include:
Electing for financial payment or a replacement device
Submitting a prescription
Opting in for an auto-adjusting CPAP if eligible
It is important to note that your patient may be required to take an action in the Patient Portal before we are able to process their replacement device.
Learn about auto-adjusting CPAP devices
If a patient is unable to obtain their prescription settings, receiving a replacement device with Auto-adjusting CPAP settings may be an option. Those who are eligible will be contacted directly by Philips Respironics and will also see this option available within the Patient Portal where they will be able to provide consent to receive a replacement device with Auto-adjusting CPAP settings.
Helping your patients set up their replacement device, and return their affected device
Once your patient has received their replacement device, we want to make sure that they have the instructions they need to set up and use their device. Please find our selection of resources available for replacement CPAP and BiPAP devices here.
Returning an affected device to Philips Respironics is an important part of our remediation process. By returning an original affected device with the provided shipping label back to Philips Respironics allows us to repair, clean, and disinfect the device so it can be provided to another patient who is awaiting a replacement.
Based on the extensive testing and analysis that we have done over the past 18 months working with five independent certified laboratories, as well as third party experts and physicians we now have a complete set of results** for the first-generation DreamStation devices. You can find the most up-to-date testing results here.
