Gold Standard Recall: CPAP, OAT & What’s Next?

Gold Standard Recall: CPAP, OAT & What’s Next?

With Dr. Greg Manning, DDS, ASBA Diplomate and Michael Cowen


The recent, global CPAP recall announced by Philips Respironics (1), dentists are faced with a call to arms for oral appliance therapy. There has never been an opportunity to both help patients and build relationships with physicians like this.

On April 26, 2021, Philips advised all patients with recalled CPAPs (~4 million devices worldwide) to discontinue the use of their CPAP machine unless their PCP advised them otherwise based on their other health conditions. As of today, the proposed solution for the recalled units has yet to receive FDA approval. Given supply chain limitations for other CPAP manufacturers and the rumors of prioritizing the most severe cases, many patients will likely go untreated.

Your patients. The ones sitting in your practice who have a CPAP that’s been recalled and don’t know it yet.

Every storm creates opportunity.

What are you going to do about it?
How do you identify patients in your practice with recalled CPAPs?
How do you talk to patients about provisional or alternative options?
And how do you build physician relationships instead of blowing up bridges?

Join Michael Cowen and Dr. Greg Manning – two industry leaders who have built sleep centers and physician relationships all over the country as they explain the best practices for your office to lean into this storm, help more patients and build local MD relationships.

Every participant will receive a free copy of our MD Relationship Starter Powerpoint and 1 CE for being present at this webinar.
