[News] RECALL THREAD-- IMPORTANT PHILIPS DREAMSTATION & SYSTEM ONE USERS

Because they have proven themselves so trustworthy, that no one would possibly think that they are hiding something...

I saw (and commented) on that. Truly baffling at this late stage.

Is there a discussion about it somewhere?

Philips sent me a DreamStation 2 and a return label for my recalled DreamStation.

Which glycol? There are dozens of glycols.
Propylene glycol is used in inhalers.

Link to proof? Link to info on said ban?

How old was your DS1?  Just trying to figure out how they are prioritizing things.

RE: RECALL THREAD-- IMPORTANT PHILIPS DREAMSTATION & SYSTEM ONE USERS
Got my DS2 last week, no notice via Fedex. Registered first day. My DS1 was a little more than 3 years old from Kaiser. No ozone use. I use Dreamapper. Noticed invoice date 9/8. Fedex is having issues with delayed deliveries. Unit called out and got my RX. Problem with Fedex tracking # on return label, not recognized in their system. Called Phillips supposed to get another label. So far low AHI, not sleeping as well. DS2 AFLEX is set at 3, don't know what DS1 setting was. WIll see how it progresses

Mvoss, note that Aflex of 3 was too high for most users a 2 was more comfortable.

Parker Waichman LLP Files Injury Lawsuit Against Philips NV And Related Entities On Behalf Of A West Virginia Woman Who Developed Lung Cancer After Using CPAP Machines

Another sad story. It does not make much sense now to post these because there are so many. This one sentence caught my attention because I did not recall this information before. This is the reason for this post.

An adverse event report in the FDA database shows a patient complaining of "black dust" as early as 2011 and OSA patients regularly reported the presence of black particles in the tubes of their devices on message boards.
