CPAP Lawsuits Allege Cancer Risk Linked to Philips Devices

In June 2021, Philips issued a recall of certain CPAP devices and mechanical ventilators due to a product defect. According to the manufacturer, these devices contain a foam material that can degrade over time. When inhaled, this foam particulate can enter the lungs, leading to inflammation and potentially causing cancer.

Devices included in the Philips recall include:

  • Philips BiLevel PAP machines
  • Philips CPAP machines
  • Philips mechanical ventilators (certain models)

In the aftermath of this alarming announcement, potential victims have filed CPAP lawsuits alleging that defective Philips CPAP machines caused their cancer and other injuries.

Qualifying Cancers and Injuries

Certain cancers and diseases may be caused by defective Philips CPAP machines and ventilators, and victims may qualify for a CPAP lawsuit.

Cancers and injuries potentially caused by defective Philips CPAP machines and ventilators include:

What is a CPAP Machine?

CPAP stands for “Continuous Positive Airway Pressure,” and CPAP machines are designed to help those suffering from sleep apnea breathe easily while sleeping by delivering a continuous flow of oxygen to the respiratory system. CPAP machines keep the user’s airways open and help them breathe normally.

“BiPAP” or “Bi-Level” PAP machines include two pressure settings, one for inhalation and one for exhalation.

CPAP machines include a motor, mask, a connecting tube, headgear, and adjustable straps. Some CPAP machines, such as those at issue in Philips CPAP lawsuits, also include a foam or other sound-dampening material intended to reduce operational noise. CPAP lawsuits allege that Philips CPAP and BiLevel PAP machines include defective foam material, which can degrade and be inhaled, potentially increasing the risk of cancer and other injuries.

Philips is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of CPAP machines and estimates that roughly 80 percent of the devices affected by the recall are CPAP machines. Other products affected by the recall include BiLevel PAP machines and certain mechanical ventilators.

CPAP Lawsuits Allegations

Philips CPAP lawsuits are based on two possible violations:

  1. Design defect
  2. Failure to warn

CPAP Lawsuit Attorneys - Riddle & BrantleyFirst, the lawsuits allege that Philips endangered patients by using a sound-dampening foam material that is prone to degrade and can be inhaled, potentially increasing the risk of cancer and other injury. Second, the CPAP lawsuits allege that Philips failed to warn consumers about the potential risks.

It should be noted that Philips has acknowledged it became aware of the product defect and potential health risk in April 2021, however a recall was not announced until June 2021.
