Children’s Minnesota is aware that many of the Philips-Respironics invasive and non-invasive ventilators have been voluntarily recalled. We have no information other than what has been provided by Philips-Respironics.
Any potential long term risks are unknown. Currently, replacement options are largely unavailable. At this time, our physicians have carefully weighed the benefits and risks of continued equipment usage. It is our recommendation that you continue use of the device as prescribed until hearing from your physician to assess individual risks for your child.
If your child is on one of these machines, your provider will be communicating directly with you via MyChildren’s portal on their recommendation based on your child’s specific circumstances. Please continue to follow guidance from your child’s provider as more information becomes available.
