Phillips Respironics CPAP, BiPAP, and Ventilator Recall

Attorneys serving the South Bay Area and San Francisco including Redondo Beach, Torrance, Manhattan Beach and Nearby Cities

On June 14, 2021 Phillips Respironics announced recall of specific sleep apnea and ventilation devices (CPAPs, BiPAPs, and ventilators) manufactured prior to April 26, 2021

The recall is on account of the sound abatement foam (used to reduce the sound and vibration of the device) used in certain Phillips devices, having the potential to break down and enter the airway of the device, which could then result in the user of the device inhaling or swallowing black debris and/or chemicals from the broken down materials. When the foam breaks down, chemicals are also released which can then be swallowed or inhaled by the CPAP, BiPAP, or ventilator user.

Inhalation or swallowing of such debris or chemicals can result in serious side effects, including respiratory irritation, headaches, nausea, vomiting, toxic and carcinogenic effects (especially to the liver and kidneys) and other serious, life-threatening medical conditions
