CPAP and ventilation machines are causing damage that is being reported nationwide—including personal injuries and cancer diagnoses.
Philips Respironics® recalled millions of CPAP and BiPAP machines because degraded PE-PUR sound abatement foam in the machines may break down and cause serious health issues, including:
- Respiratory inflammation and
- Other toxic effects
Phillips® has announced that the company is recalling between 3 and 4 million CPAP and ventilation devices due to disintegrating sound-reducing foam.
Consumers have begun to report severe side effects, including kidney/liver damage, wide-ranging chemical poisonings, and other unhealthy conditions.
Many consumers experience severe and long-lasting side effects from the chemical from the recalled machines, including cancers, strokes, and a variety of cancers.
With a surge in the number of Philips© CPAP ventilators and machines linked to respiratory issues, chemical poisonings, and much more, recalls on this medical equipment are also more frequent.
About 80% of the affected devices are CPAP machines and about 20% are ventilators, Philips® spokesman Steve Klink told Reuters.
Most of the devices come from Philips’ DreamStation® line—more than half of the affected devices are in the U.S., according to Philips®.
