Philips CPAP Lawsuits:

What You Need To Know

Philips CPAP, BiPAP, and ventilator devices have been found out to contain polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam that may cause cancer and serious respiratory problems. This has caused a number of lawsuits against the company, seeking compensation for injuries and for expenses for medical bills and the cost of replacing the said devices.

The lawsuits claim that Philips manufactured these defective devices but did not issue a warning to the public of the risk or serious injuries.

Millions were affected by the Philips CPAP recall in June 2021 and has led people with sleep apnea to find other alternatives to treat their condition. On Sept. 1, 2021, Philps announced that it would repair or replace these recalled devices, but it may take a year to do so.

Below is a list of Philips devices that were recalled:

• SystemOne;

• C-Series;

• OmniLab Advanced Plus;

• Dorma 400

• Dorma 500

• REMStar SE Auto

• Trilogy 100

• Trilogy 200

• Garbin Plus

• Aeris

• LifeVent

The FDA’s investigation further reveals the company’s own internal testing proved that the degradation products of PE-PUR foam are toxic and have carcinogenic elements. However, it seems that Philips chose to keep using the PE-PUR foam and kept the public unaware.

FDA's inspection report also revealed that the degradation of PE-PUR foam is something that Philips has always been aware of as far back as 2015.
