Philips CPAP Recall Lawsuits

Philips CPAP Recall Lawsuits – Questions and Answers

A man wearing a mask and breathing apparatus for protection against airborne contaminants.

As of April 18, 2022, hundreds of people have filed lawsuits against Philips over CPAP and BiPAP machines used to treat sleep apnea.

In June 2021, Philips issued a recall of more than a dozen models of its most popular CPAP and BiPAP sleep apnea machines because they contained foam which could cause health problems for users.
Consumers who suffered injuries from these machines are filing CPAP lawsuits seeking damages from Philips.

Our lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP are reviewing claims for people injured by Philips CPAP and BiPAP apnea machines. During this process, we hear many questions about the Philips CPAP recall, the injuries these machines can cause, and what to do if you were a recalled CPAP user.

We will provide some of that basic information here. But, if you suffered injuries from a recalled CPAP or BiPAP, call us today at 800-403-6191 for a free Philips CPAP case evaluation.

Why Do People Use Philips CPAP and BiPAP Machines?

Philips CPAP and BiPAP machines treat people with obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes people to have breathing irregularities while they sleep.

The breathing irregularities can lead to a wide range of dangerous health problems, including high blood pressure, headaches, heart attacks, and strokes.

How Do CPAP and BiPAP Machines Work?

CPAP – continuous positive airway pressure – and BiPAP – bi-level positive airway pressure – machines both treat sleep apnea by forcing air through a mask that users wear while they sleep. The machine forces air with enough pressure to keep airways open and free from obstruction. When working properly, CPAP machines can successfully treat sleep apnea and help people avoid the additional health problems it can cause.

Why Did Philips Recall CPAP Machines?

Philips recalled various models of CPAP and BiPAP machines because they are believed to be dangerous, even when used as instructed.

Why Are Philips CPAP and BiPAP Sleep Apnea Machines Dangerous?

The recalled devices contain a foam used for noise reduction. The foam, made of polyester polyurethane, is called PE-PUR and helps the machines run more quietly than they otherwise would.

PE-PUR foam in sleep apnea machines can break down. If it does, CPAP users can inhale or ingest its carcinogenic and toxic particles.

PE-PUR foam is prone to break down after exposure to conditions that include sunlight, moisture, heat, fungus, microbial products, and oxygen. For instance, if you use certain products to clean your CPAP or expose it to high humidity, you might be at greater risk of inhaling dangerous particles.

What Injuries Can Recalled CPAP Machines Cause?

Inhaling or ingesting PE-PUR foam particles or off-gasses might cause some of the following injuries and health conditions:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Cancer
  • Respiratory inflammation
  • Airway irritation
  • Sinus infections
  • Chest pressure
  • Asthma
  • Kidney damage
  • Liver damage
  • Lung damage

  • DreamStation ASV
  • DreamStation BiPAP
  • DreamStation ST
  • DreamStation CPAP
  • DreamStation Go
  • Dreamstation Auto CPAP

Can I File A Philips CPAP Lawsuit?

You might be eligible to file a lawsuit against Philips because of its defective and dangerous CPAP machines.

You might be entitled to collect compensation related to Philips’s negligence.

Consider the following-

Did you use a sleep apnea machine that was part of the Philips CPAP and BiPAP recall?
Did you use it for several consecutive months or years?
Did you receive a diagnosis of respiratory or pulmonary illness?
Did you receive a diagnosis of cancer such as liver, kidney, or lung cancer?
Did you experience other (non-cancerous) damage to your kidneys or liver?

If the answer is “yes,” call our CPAP recall lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP, to learn about your legal rights and options.

What Is The Current Status of Philips CPAP Recall Lawsuits?

There are currently hundreds of lawsuits against Philips related to the recall of CPAP and BiPAP sleep apnea machines. The cases have been formed into an MDL (multidistrict litigation) and consolidated before a single judge in Pennsylvania to make the litigation process more efficient for all parties involved. Creating an MDL generally makes it easier for injured victims to participate in the litigation.

How Much Can I Collect From A Philips CPAP Lawsuit?

There is no way to know how much compensation, if any, you might receive from your Philips CPAP lawsuit. It can depend on various factors, including the seriousness of your injuries and how long Philips knew the CPAP machines were dangerous. However, the more injured victims come forward to file lawsuits against it, the more pressure Philips might feel to enter into a settlement.

We were very fortunate to meet David Krangle
My husband and myself had been involved in a multiple vehicle accident 5 years ago. At that time we were given the name of Mr. David Krangle, attorney. It took close to 5 years of very diligent work for Mr Krangle to complete our case to everyone’s satisfaction. During those years of endless hours and hours of work that he put into our case yet whenever we reached out to Dave (as the years allowed us to call him) he was always available to us. His patience did seem endless. His professionalism in researching everything to make our turnout perfect for us was everything we expected and let us rest knowing things are following the right path. I know we were treated with the utmost respect from various insurance companies and other attorney’s because that was something Mr Krangle made sure of. In difficult times it can be intimidating to work with a professional but we were very fortunate to meet David Krangle who had the ability to share warmth and compassion with us during a trying time. Those are traits that we admired in David Krangle and are delighted to have worked with him.

Strongly Recommend Alonso Krangle As a Highly Experienced And Respected Firm

I consulted a close friend and well respected lawyer in the mid-Atlantic region regarding my hip revision surgery due to a medical device recall. Without hesitation, he strongly recommended contacting Alonso Krangle LLP to discuss my case. In his view, Alonso Krangle possessed extensive knowledge and experience in the type of litigation my case required, as well the respect of those throughout the judicial field for their professionalism. Equally as important, their personal focus on each individual’s case gives the client a feeling they are their only concern. My friend’s assessment could not have been more accurate.

Although in New York, Alonso Krangle could not have been more responsive or accommodating if they were located here in Virginia. I cannot recall a single time when my wife or I called their office and did not speak to either Andres Alonso or David Krangle. They were always completely available and ready to answer any and all of our questions. Their advice and recommendations were always honest, sincere, and accurate enabling us to plan accordingly. Legal proceedings can be a long process, but we never felt left out or forgotten thanks to timely updates initiated by Alonso Krangle. In the end, everything turned out as Alonso Krangle estimated from the beginning. I could not have expected better personal attention or concern from a family member handling my case. As with my friend, I too, would not hesitate to strongly recommend Alonso Krangle as a highly experienced and respected firm that will treat you like family.
