Respironics, Inc., a Philips Healthcare business, announced a worldwide recall of approximately 600 Philips Respironics Trilogy Ventilators due to a potentially defective component on the Trilogy Ventilator power management board, which could affect the function of the device. If this issue is not corrected it is possible that the ventilator may fail to deliver mechanical breaths and that the alarm functionality may be reduced to indicate ventilatory failure, resulting in severe patient harm.
This recall affects models 100, 200 and 202, shipped between December 31, 2013, and January 30, 2014. Countries where affected devices have been shipped include the United States, France, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Korea, Kuwait, Netherlands, and Singapore.
Customers who have questions about the recall or require further information or support concerning this issue, may contact their local Philips Respironics representative via the Customer Care Center phone number: 1-800-345-6443, which is active 24/7.
