No. ResMed is a competitor to Philips that also makes CPAP, BiPAP, and other ventilator devices, and has no connection to the defective Philips CPAP and BiPAP machines that have been recalled. According to a 2021 statement by the CEO of ResMed:

“Most ResMed CPAP, APAP, bilevel, and ventilator devices use a polyether polyurethane foam material that our team selected based on studies that show it’s more resistant to water than alternative materials, and therefore is more durable in moist environments. One series of ResMed ventilators (Stellar) uses a silicone-based foam that has been tested, verified, and validated for safe and effective use using rigorous ResMed quality system protocols.”

In addition, the statement maintains that “ResMed devices are safe to use and are not subject to Philips’ recall.” Patients using ResMed ventilators do not need to worry about possible health risks at this time.
