Philips CPAP Recall Lawsuit Attorneys

We’re Advocating for Those Injured Nationwide

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall on various Philips CPAP, BiPAP, and ventilators after reports of respiratory problems and lung cancer, among other injuries. While the recall will prevent future injuries, it is too late for the many Americans already injured by these machines. No one should be put in harm’s way by a medical device they were told could improve their health and help them manage their symptoms.

Has a Philips Respironics CPAP machine caused you or a loved one injury? If so, Houssiere Durant & Houssiere, LLP is here to advocate for you. Our Houston trial lawyers are reviewing cases nationwide involving defective Philips Respironics sleep apnea machines. Those injured may have grounds to file suit against Philips for financial compensation.

If you have been injured, find out if you qualify to file a Philips CPAP recall lawsuit. Call (800) 914-2894 today for a free consultation with a national lawyer. 

Potential Health Risks and Injuries

After receiving numerous complaints of injury, the FDA investigated Philips Respironics CPAP, BiPAP and Ventilators machines for potential health hazards. It found that the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam in these machines, which reduces sound and vibration, is likely  to deteriorate and enter the machine’s air pathway. This puts the user at risk of accidentally swallowing the foam’s black debris and/or inhaling carcinogenic chemicals.

The potential health risks associated with recalled Philips sleep apnea machines include but are not limited to:

  • Lung, liver, and blood cancer
  • Asthma
  • Confusion
  • Headaches
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Dizziness and fainting
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Eye, skin, nose, and throat irritation
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
