CPAP Lawsuit

Philips Respironics has recalled millions of units of its continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), bi-level positive airway pressure (BiPAP), and mechanical ventilator because of possible carcinogenic and toxic effects of a foam used in the devices that can escape as a gas or particulates and be inhaled or ingested by CPAP users and cause cancer, respiratory issues, or other significant health issues. In testing, Philips discovered that the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) foam it had used to dampen the sound of the devices can degrade into particles that can be in ingested or inhaled by the user. Ingesting or inhaling these particles is linked to:

  • Carcinogenic effects
  • Toxic effects
  • Respiratory issues
  • Chemical exposure risk
  • Woman using CPAP BiPap for sleep apnea.
