Things to Know About Philips CPAP Lawsuit

In June 2021, Philips officially and voluntarily recalled the CPAP, Bi-level PAP machines and mechanical ventilator devices. The recall occurred as these machines and devices were posing a potential danger to the patients who have been using them. The polyester-based polyurethane sound abetment foam component of the machines can disintegrate. And that can cause the user to inhale or ingest toxic gas. This out gas contains carcinogen. The recall also includes the devices from the DreamStation product family.

As per the reports from Philips, this foam can degrade and create particles that can get into the air pathway and get ingested. The foam off-gas also contains harmful chemicals. Also, the unapproved cleaning methods can add to the toxicity of the machine.

The company failed to warn the customers in their CPAP user manual about the potential health risks that these devices bring. That is why you can sue them for compensation for the injuries and problems these devices have caused.

Possible Side Effects of Using CPAP Machine

If you or your loved ones have been using CPAP and Bi-level PAP devices, it can cause the following potential health risks:

  • Possible carcinogen effect or cancer
  • Possible toxic effect from the gas
  • Breathing issues
  • Adverse effects on kidney, liver and other organs
  • Headache
  • Inflammation
  • Irritation in the skin, eye and respiratory tract

Apart from this, Philips has received many complaints where the patients have reported that they have seen black debris in the airpath circuit of the machine. And that has caused chest congestion, sinus infection, headaches and upper airway irritation.

Risks From Off gassing

Off-gassing from the devices can be dangerous for the patients too. Philips has reported several potential risks from the volatile component and other harmful chemicals in the machine in vapor form.

  • Possible carcinogen effect or cancer
  • Possible effect from ingesting toxic gas
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Irritation in nose, skin, eye and respiratory tract
What Compensation You Can Get From the Company

As the manufacturing company of these machines failed to inform the customers about the potential risks, you can file a lawsuit with our Pittsburgh CPAP lawyer and claim the following compensations:

  • Past and future medical bills for the treatment of the injuries and problems
  • Past and future expenses for compensating for the physical pain and mental trauma
  • Wage loss due to the injury and the treatment
