Millions of people rely on CPAP, Bi-Level PAP and other mechanical breathing machines to treat sleep apnea. The machines, however, may actually be releasing dangerous toxins and particles that can be inhaled or ingested while the users are sleeping, potentially leading to health side effects like:
- Lung, Kidney, Liver, Colon and other cancers
- Heart Attack, Heart Failure or Stroke
- Respiratory Failure
- Liver Disease
- Kidney Disease
If your doctor diagnosed you with any of these conditions after using a Philips CPAP or BiPAP machine, filing a lawsuit might be your chance to hold Philips accountable for exposing you to unnecessary risks and causing you devastating injuries.
Our experienced attorneys are investigating potential lawsuits for people who use Philips CPAP or Bi-level PAP machines for sleep apnea. Contact our legal team immediately if you or a loved one were diagnosed with lung cancer or have experienced chronic respiratory issues.
Philips Recalled CPAP devices due to cancer risks
Medical manufacturer Royal Philips announced a voluntarily recall in June 2021 for several of its sleep apnea machines. Numerous reports indicate the machine’s noise reduction foam may break down and release toxic gasses and particles that could cause chronic respiratory illnesses, poison the user, or even cause cancer.
The recall primarily affects the Philips CPAP machines from the first generation of its DreamStation© line. It also affects some of its Bi-level PAP machines and mechanical ventilators.
Philips was alerted in April 2021 that the noise reduction foam in these devices can break down into particles. The particles then can make their way into the airway portion of the devices. Inhaling, ingesting, or absorbing these particles can increase your risk of lung cancer and other injuries.
Philips claims to be taking steps to remedy the dangers associated with its CPAP devices, but it might be too late for many users of these defective CPAP and Bi-level PAP machines.
Philips has advised that if you use the recalled CPAP and Bi-level PAP machines you should stop immediately and speak to your doctor about alternatives devices to address your sleep apnea. Do not do anything without consulting your physician if you use one of the recalled Philips CPAP, Bi-level PAP devices.
Over 3.5 million Philips Respironics CPAP and BiPAP machines were recalled in June 2021 due to toxic sound abatement foam used in the breathing devices.
