CPAP Lawsuits Alleges Links Between Philips Devices and Cancer Risks
Phillips, in June of 2021, recalled certain CPAP devices and mechanical ventilators due to product defects. The manufacturer cited that the recalled devices contained foam materials capable of degrading over time. The degraded foam material, when inhaled, enters into the lung causing inflammation and exposing users to cancer risks. Additionally, if the foam is ingested it causes risk of other health conditions, including cancers.

What is a CPAP Machine?
A Continuous Positive Airways Pressure (CPAP) machine is designed to help people who suffer from sleep apnea, breathe easily as they sleep. The machine delivers a continuous flow of oxygen to the user’s respiratory system thus preventing respiratory collapse – a major symptom of sleep apnea.
A “Bi-Level” or BiPAP machine offers two pressure settings for inhalation and exhalation.
CPAP Machines are designed to include a mask, motor, connecting tube, adjustable straps, and headgear. Some CPAP machines, like the recalled Philips products, contain foams or other sound-cancellation materials intended to reduce the operational noise. In this CPAP lawsuit, it is alleged that the Philips CPAP and BiLevel PAP machines contained defective foam materials that degrade and increase the risk of cancer and other health injuries when inhaled. The PE-PUR sound abatement foam has been identified as toxic and potentially carcinogenic.
Philips has one of the largest CPAP machine market shares and about 80% of its CPAP machines have been recalled.
