CPAP Machines Have Been Recalled - You May Be Due Compensation
In July 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alerted people who use Philips Respironics mechanical ventilators, BiPAP, and CPAP, and their health care providers that Philips Respironics has recalled certain devices due to potential health risks, including cancer.
CPAP Machine Recall
The Philips’ CPAP recall notice advised customers that they may have been exposed to dangerous foam particles and chemicals when the device is in use. The foam – a polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) – reduces the amount of vibration and noise when the machines are in use.
This foam degrades over time, potentially entering the device’s air pathway and leaving tiny black particles in the machine. These particles may be inhaled or swallowed by the person using the device. Additionally, foam degradation may occur or be exacerbated by high heat and high humidity environments and by use of unapproved cleaning methods, such as ozone.
Philips estimates that 3-4 million devices may have been affected by this defective sound abatement foam.
Identified Health Problems
Numerous health risks have been attributed to the foam degradation process, both from inhaling the particles and from exposure to the particulates and gases.
- Upper airway irritation
- Chest pressure
- Sinus Infection
- Inflammatory response
- Cancer, especially lung, kidney, and liver
- Irritation in the eyes, nose, respiratory tract, skin (or hypersensitivity)
- Toxic and carcinogenic effects
