Philips CPAP Machine Recall Lawsuits

Call Connecticut’s Trusted Product Liability Law Firm

Philips Respironics (Philips) CPAP machines, BiPAP machines, and ventilators have been flagged for recent recalls due to health risks caused by an abatement foam used within the product. Some users may be at risk of suffocation or cancer due to a product defect that causes the foam to break apart during regular use. Consumers who have purchased or rely on a Philips CPAP machine are now suing the company for damages, including those who have not directly suffered a physical injury or illness but who have been burdened by the recall all the same.

Carter Mario Law Firm is currently hearing from people throughout Connecticut who might have a valid claim against Philips for their defective CPAP and BiPAP machines. We are known as one of the state’s premier personal injury law firms with a focus on complex consumer litigation, such as cases that involve recalled products and class action lawsuits. Please let us know right away if you need help with your case or if you just have questions about filing a claim.

Numerous Philips brand CPAP machines have been recalled, including:

  • DreamStation ASV
  • Dorma 400
  • Trilogy 100
  • A-Series BiPAP A40
  • C-Series ASV
  • And more

Free consultations are available. Call (203) 876-2711 to schedule yours.

Cancer Risks of Defective Philips CPAP Machines

One concern that has arisen about the defective CPAP and BiPAP machines is that the polyurethane sound abatement foam used in the machines contains possible carcinogens. With regular use, the foam has been found to break apart and enter the device’s airway channel. If the pieces are small enough, then they can be inhaled and become lodged in the user’s lungs, where they may begin to cause lung cancer and disease as time goes by.

Have you been diagnosed with cancer after using a Philips-brand CPAP machine? There could be a direct link, especially if cancer has affected your lungs or chest.

You should take these steps if you have not already:

  • See a medical professional for a diagnosis of your symptoms.
  • Save a copy of any related medical records to use for your case.
  • Call our Connecticut CPAP lawsuit attorneys at (203) 876-2711.

Choking Hazards Caused by Broken Foam

Another serious risk of the sound abatement foam breaking apart is that it could cause a large enough piece to break off and lodge in the user’s airway, causing suffocation. CPAP machines are used mostly when people are sleeping to treat their sleep apnea. As such, if a piece breaks off while the user is sleeping, then they might be at an exaggerated risk of suffocating or choking.

Unsuitable Recall Leaves People without Sleep

Others are upset over the way that Philips has handled the recall, which, according to them, has barely been handled at all. According to consumer complaints, they have sent back their CPAP machines as instructed but have been given nothing in return. They do not have a replacement, so they are constantly struggling to sleep each night in the meantime. Most of these people also cannot afford to buy another CPAP machine on their own because the devices can cost thousands of dollars.

Without regular sleep, people have been struggling with:

  • Chronic exhaustion
  • Job loss or instability due to fatigue
  • Mental health difficulties
  • Physical ailments caused by insufficient sleep

In addition to the lawsuits that are forming due to the health hazards caused by these CPAP machines, there might be lawsuits related to the unsuitable recall process. Our attorneys are hearing from people with these cases as well.
