    Things To Know About Philips CPAP Lawsuits

    On June 14, 2021, Philips has issued a voluntary recall of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure or CPAP machine and Bi-level Positive Airway Pressure or Bi-Pap and mechanical ventilator devices. The manufacturing company has identified that the polyester-based polyurethane used for these machines can cause people to inhale and ingest toxic gas and even carcinogen substances.

    According to reports and testing, Philips has determined that the component can degrade into particles that enter the device’s air pathway. Thus the user will ingest it. Also, the foam might off-gas harmful chemicals.

    The cases are files as the company in their CPAP user manual for the first generation DreamStation product family, which has the most number of defective devices, has failed to warn the users of the potential risk of using the machine.
