The FDA issued a Class I Recall for the devices, the most serious type of recall for CPAP and BiPAP devices, as well as a series of mechanical ventilators manufactured and sold by Philips Respironics. On June 14, 2021 Philips Respironics issued a recalled and notified customers of the defective CPAP devices. Reports indicate the sound abatement foam used by the manufacturer is susceptible to emitting toxic particles and gases into the airways of the users.
A Class I recall is the most serious type of recall issued by the FDA. It is issued when there is a “reasonable probability that the use of or exposure to a violative product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.”
Philips Respironics has recalled certain mechanical ventilators, BiPAP, and CPAP machines due to potential health risks, including cancer. If you’ve used a Philips sleep apnea machine and experienced injuries or illnesses as a result, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation through a Philips CPAP lawsuit.
