Mass Tort Update: CPAP RECALL ANNOUNCED
CPAP RECALL ANNOUNCED
Millions of people rely on CPAP, BiPAP, or other mechanical ventilators to help treat sleep apnea. Tragically, the very machine they rely on to treat breathing problems may actually be causing them far greater harm.
Medical device manufacturer Royal Philips announced a recall of several of its sleep apnea devices amid findings that certain components in the machine may degrade and release toxic particles that are inhaled and that could cause respiratory illness or even lung cancer.
Philips estimates that 3 to 4 million devices may be affected, the majority of which are first-generation DreamStation products sold before April 2021.
If you or a loved one use a recalled Philips device, you should immediately consult with your healthcare provider.
You may also want to hold on to your device and consult with an attorney.
