Millions Affected by Phillips CPAP & BiPap Device Recall

On June 14, 2021, Philips Respironics, one of the largest manufacturers of sleep apnea and ventilator machines, recalled millions of its devices due to potentially severe health risks, which can be life-threatening, cause permanent impairment, and require medical intervention to prevent permanent damage.

The polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam, which is used to reduce sound and vibration, can break down and potentially enter a device’s air pathway.  If this occurs, toxic black particulates may be ingested by a patient, potentially leading to severe medical conditions, including:

  • Cancer
  • Kidney Failure
  • Liver Failure
  • Respiratory Failure
  • Heart Attacks or Heart Failure

If you or a loved one used a Philips sleep apnea device and are experiencing health issues, we invite you to call our office to schedule a free consultation with an experienced New York CPAP injury attorney.  We represent clients injured by the Phillips recall on contingency, meaning we never charge a fee unless we are successful in recovering compensation on their behalf.  Further, if a trial is necessary, we advance all litigation expenses while a case is ongoing.
