NOTICE: Philips Respironics Recall Replacement Tally
#41
RE: Philips Respironics Recall Replacement Tally
I voted, and appreciate seeing the chart.

I live in the US.  I registered on-line when first able to do so.  My DS1 was originally delivered in October 2017.
Except on this board, I never heard from anyone about the recall and have ever attempted to call Philips.  
I have been using a Resmed AirMini, which I purchased after this began, with no issues.  Have learned that a nose pillow works fine for me.  This unit does not use water, have only noticed drying in my mouth since winter started w/lower indoor humidity.
At any rate, I got an email from Philips December 20 saying that I was in line to receive a replacement machine.
Then, on December 28, received an email saying a unit had been shipped with a Fed Ex tracking number.
A DS2 unit arrived December 30 and was placed on my porch (I was out of town for the holidays).  
The box got wet in the rain and there was some moisture on the unit.  I am drying it all out now and probably will call Philips to replace it.
I never contacted my DME, at the beginning of the recall or anytime since.  Philips sent it to my house.
