Join representatives from the AASM and other professional societies from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. EDT on Friday, June 25,  for a live panel discussion about the impact of the Philips PAP device recall notification on vulnerable populations, including pediatric patients, the hospitalized, patients who are dependent on a ventilator, and research participants.

Download a PDF copy of the webinar slides.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Allocation of limited supplies – how to prioritize the medically most needy given the limited supply of home ventilators for patients needing them
  • Respiratory therapy in hospitals – how to navigate hospital needs due to the recall of the A-Series devices (which are similar in broad functionality to OmniLabs)
  • Special issues for pediatrics – unknown differential effects of chemical/particulate exposure in the very young; limited information dissemination and limited supply of alternatives
  • Research – how to ethically navigate care for those enrolled in clinical trials

No registration is required for this live webinar. Following the live event, a recording will be posted online.
