Phillips Respironics CPAP Recall Mass Tort Litigation

Product Description

Phillips Respironics CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machines are widely prescribed devices designed to assist individuals with sleep apnea. These devices ensure that patients maintain an open airway during sleep, helping to prevent the interruptions in breathing characteristic of sleep apnea.

Harmful Effects

Phillips Respironics issued a recall for certain CPAP machines due to concerns about potential health risks. The foam used in these devices, intended to reduce noise and vibration, was found to degrade and break down. This degradation can lead to the release of small particles and harmful gases, which patients might inhale. Exposure to these particles and gases can result in various health issues, including respiratory problems, inflammation, headaches, and potential toxic or carcinogenic effects. The recall and associated health risks have led to legal actions against Phillips Respironics by affected individuals.
