Philips CPAP Recall Investigation

Updated on
Published on

The ongoing Philips CPAP recall investigation involves injuries caused by recalled CPAP machines. The recall affected millions of sleep apnea devices, leading to a consolidated Multi-District Litigation (MDL) with thousands of plaintiffs. It is alleged that Philips was aware of the risks associated with the degraded foam used in their machines but failed to adequately warn the public or initiate a timely recall.

What is the Philips CPAP Machine and Why is it Subject to Claims?

Philips, a global leader in health technology, manufactured the CPAP, BiPAP, and mechanical ventilator devices that are now subject to a class action investigation. These devices were designed to assist individuals with sleep apnea and other respiratory conditions. However, the foam used in these machines has been found to degrade over time, potentially releasing toxic particles and gases that users could inhale or ingest.

The investigation seeks people who were injured by Philips being aware of the risks associated with the degraded foam but failing to take appropriate action. The FDA has raised concerns about the testing data submitted by Philips and the increasing number of adverse health events and deaths related to the recalled devices. This has led to a consolidated Multi-District Litigation (MDL) with thousands of plaintiffs.
