The TGA is working with Philips on its global recall action for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP) devices and mechanical ventilators. Risks are posed by the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam component in these devices. The majority of the affected devices are in the first-generation DreamStation product family.
