What to Do If Your Philips CPAP Machine Was Recalled?
Do you know what to do if your CPAP machine was recalled? Many consumers don’t always know what to do next when they realize that the manufacturer recalled their device. Patients that use CPAP and BiPAP devices need their machines to treat sleep apnea. What should you do?
First, it is important to know that if you develop respiratory conditions or certain cancers after using your recalled CPAP or BiPAP machine, you might be eligible to file a Philips CPAP recall lawsuit. The Philips CPAP machine may cause significant injury and harm to consumers when the foam inside, known as PE-PUR foam, breaks down. This foam contains carcinogenic toxins that may cause a variety of illnesses and cancers.

In the summer of 2021, Philips began to recall specific CPAP, BiPAP, and ventilators built with PE-PUR foam. More than half of all affected devices are in use in the United States, according to Philips. The recall includes all serial numbers for devices manufactured between 2008 and April 26, 2021, of the following models:
