After significant study, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officially recalled the Respironics PLV Continuum Ventilator on March 20, 2006.

The Respironics PLV Continuum Ventilator was used to control or assist breathing in patients and may have been used in settings such as in the home or in institutions. However, a design flaw in the Respironics PLV Continuum Ventilator caused the air flow valve to break, thus stopping the ventilation process.

Respironics California, Inc., the manufacturer of the Respironics PLV Continuum Ventilator, agreed with the FDA's evaluation of its machine and voluntarily mailed letters to all Respironics PLV Continuum Ventilator customers in March 2006. The customers were instructed to stop using the ventilators to treat themselves or patients. Respironics also offered customers suitable Respironics PLV Continuum Ventilator replacements.

Though the FDA's Class 1 Recall was heeded, many customers may not have received the warnings until too late. Though their adverse experiences with the Respironics PLV Continuum Ventilator might not have been fatal, rest assured that they were unpleasant at worst and irritating at best.
