**Philips Respironics Recall**
Philips Respironics announced a voluntary recall for Continuous and Non-Continuous Ventilators (certain CPAP, BiLevel PAP and Ventilator Devices) due to two issues related to the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam used in these devices.

At this time, The CPAP Store is awaiting further instructions from Philips Respironics on how to handle the situation.
Setting the standards for CPAP Therapy.
Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that can impact a person's health physically, mentally, and socially. Most people who suffer from the effects of OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) find themselves unable to complete a full day of work or exercise without fighting to stay awake. Long distance traveling is limited by their ability to stay awake at the wheel. OSA has been linked to other conditions such as Hypertension, Diabetes Type 2, Coronary Artery Disease, Obesity, and some forms of cancer.
But there is good news for the one who suffers from this condition. CPAP therapy has been documented to show a vast improvement in the condition of those suffering from OSA. Many people have witnessed an improvement in sleep quality, energy level, and mental concentration since starting CPAP therapy. With a sense of renewed freedom a CPAP device brings, people have reclaimed their lives and health.
The CPAP Store offers a unique management style of motivating those starting CPAP. With ongoing follow-up and communication, the client knows they are not on their own but rather has someone ready to listen to their issues and problems. Through the cooperative care between medical equipment supplier and the primary care provider, the client knows he/she is in the right hands.
