Philips Sleep Apnea Machine Recall

Experienced Trial Attorneys Ready to Fight for You

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a recall of Philips Respironics ventilators and BiPAP and CPAP machines due to potential health risks. The root of these risks is the polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam used by these Philips sleep apnea devices to reduce sound and vibration.

Per the FDA, the PE-PUR sound abatement foam is liable to break down and potentially enter the device’s air pathway. This creates a risk for the person using the device to accidentally inhale or swallow the foam’s black debris or certain chemicals, which may result in serious and/or permanent injury.

If you have been injured by one of the recalled Philips sleep apnea machines, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. Our injury lawyers can discuss your legal rights in a free consultation, with no strings attached. You may be eligible for financial compensation for the damages you have suffered, such as pain and suffering, medical and hospital bills, and more.

Don’t wait—call (888) 801-9916 today to learn about your legal rights in a free, confidential consultation. Our injury attorneys can also be reached via an online contact form. We are accepting cases across the nation.
