URGENT Medical Device Correction

ResMed and Philips have provided us with important information regarding their masks with magnets, which may interact with some implants and certain medical devices. It is important that you understand the information, Act if necessary and retain it for your future reference.

 

Masks with magnetic components are contraindicated for use by patients where they, or anyone in close physical contact while using the masks, have the following:

 

  • Active medical implants that interact with magnets [i.e. – pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), neurostimulators, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunts, insulin/infusion pumps]

  • Metallic implants/objects containing ferromagnetic material [i.e. – aneurysm clips/flow disruption devices, embolic coils, stents, valves, electrodes, implants to restore hearing or balance with implanted magnets, ocular implants, metallic splinters in the eye]

If you are impacted by any of these above magnetic components and use one of the masks listed below, please email safetynotice@sleepmedcenter.com [see email guidelines below] for a replacement to be either shipped to you [$12 shipping] or can be picked up in a local Center for Sleep Medicine office with advanced notice to ensure inventory availability [$0 shipping].
