Philips Respironics did notice a link between patient's that were using unapproved cleaning methods (such as ozone cleaners) and further degradation of the foam. They are asking that anyone using an ozone cleaner (such as the SoClean) to please discontinue using it. 

ATL staff is working quickly and diligently to gather information and progress to the next steps of how the recall process is going to be handled. All patient's using a Respironics device should be receiving a letter from Respironics, explaining further, and possible actions to be made. While we await more information from the manufacture, we appreciate everyone's understanding and patience. We ask that if you have any questions or concerns for ATL to please come into either of our offices. One of our friendly staff members, would be happy to assist. you.
