What you need to do next
Philips has established a registration process that allows Patients, Users, or Caregivers to look up their device serial number and begin a registration if their unit is affected.
This registration is necessary so that the next step in the TGA approved process can be implemented.
You will need to enter your device serial number to begin the registration process.
You can locate your device serial number on the bottom of your machine (see picture below).
IMPORTANT: If a humidifier was included with your sleep therapy device, be sure to remove the water chamber before you proceed.
The serial number is located on the bottom of your device and it begins with "P" or "J" and contains 13 characters or begins with "D" and contains 14 characters.
Once you are sure of your device serial number, please click on the link below to enter it into the registration page:
After a brief serial number verification check, you will be asked to click on the ‘Register’ button to register your device.
You will then be redirected to a secure form to enter your contact information.
After securely submitting your online details, Philips will have your latest contact information to be able to communicate directly with you.
We appreciate this is concerning and we sincerely appreciate your patience during this difficult time. If you need further information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact details. An Easy CPAP support member will be in contact with you.
