Senior woman using cpap machine to stop choking and snoring from obstructive sleep apnea
Inserra | Kelley | Sewell
(800) 642-1242

Phillips is recalling millions of sleep apnea machines and ventilators as they pose a serious health risk and they have advised consumers to stop using them immediately. A foam piece used in devices can degrade and release potentially toxic fumes into the patients. Some of the devices and ventilators being recalled are used for treating coronavirus patients.

The exposure to foam particles could cause headache, irritation, inflammation, respiratory issues, and possible toxic and carcinogenic effects, Philips said. The company will replace the current sound abatement foam with a new material and has already begun the preparations, which include obtaining the relevant regulatory clearances. Philips aims to address all affected devices in scope of this correction as expeditiously as possible.

The devices being recalled are Bi-Level PAP, CPAP and mechanical ventilator devices which are primarily first-generation DreamStation products.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a lung issue and/or lung cancer caused by a Phillips CPAP Machine and/or Ventilator, please call the experts at Inserra Kelley Sewell to see whether you might be entitled to compensation.
