@patientk, This discussion was started due to a recall on a specific brand of CPAP machine - Philips Respironics.
ResMed and other manufacturers are not included in the cancer cause for concern.

Here is the recall notice:
Medical Device recall notification (U.S. only) / field safety notice (International Markets)
