Philips Respironics Recall Replacement Tally

Philips Respironics Recall Replacement Tally
I hope this poll will be useful. I personally don’t have a pony in this race, but I have friends who are affected by the PR recall. I have read a number of posts where people are getting DS2 replacements and am curious as to how many, and which models are getting into the patients’ hands. At present, I have not read any testimonies of refurbished, or new & upgraded, DS1 xPAP’s being provided. But that may change in the future.

So here goes the Poll.
If you have one of the Philips Respironics machines affected by the recall (I don’t really care which model you have for the case of this poll), and you now have a replacement xPAP, I’m curious which one you received as a replacement. Also, for the sake of this poll, I’m not interested in the instances where someone has removed foam from a PR xPAP and resumed operation of the modified machine. There are enough threads that cover that topic.

Sorry, I know these poll options don’t encompass all possible answers. And some answers don’t necessarily apply right now, but may in the future. So please pick the one that fits your situation best and post an explanation with details if you wish.

Would love to hear what "other brands" of xPAP's people are getting for a PR replacement. And maybe how much of a copay people have pay in copay situations.
