Philips CPAP Lawsuit: Toxic Foam Linked to Cancer & Major Health Problems
A Philips CPAP or Philips CPAP breathing machine is a type of medical device that was originally manufactured and sold by the U.S. based company Respironics. In 2008, Respironics was acquired by the multi-billion dollar Dutch-based conglomerate Philips. Unfortunately, serious health and safety questions have been linked to this medical device. On June 30th, 2021, the United States Food and Drug Administration issued an official public safety advisory. Many users of the product have been found to breathe in a toxic foam. Lawsuits have been filed against the medical device company. As stated in these legal claims, some complications that have been linked to the foam include:
- Acute Respiratory Distress System (ARDS);
- Other respiratory problems, including asthma;
- Heart problems; and
- Several forms of cancer.
Dangers of Philips CPAP & Sleep Apnea Machines
Many people who suffer from sleep apnea used a CPAP Machine from Philips, and instead of it helping them sleep better, it caused cancer in many users. There’s nothing more frustrating than putting your trust in a medical device and a company that claims it can help you, only to have it injure you instead.
If you have been suffering through a cancer diagnosis and believe it could be linked to using a Philips CPAP machine, it is time to speak with a skilled Miami lawyer who can help you seek compensation. Compensation can cover medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of joy of life, and more. Call Spencer Morgan Law today at 305-423-3800 to schedule a free consultation.
The Issue With Philips CPAP And Sleep Apnea Machines
Philips recalled millions of CPAP and other sleep apnea machines because many users were breathing toxic foam caused by a defect with their machines. Ingesting this toxic foam can cause cancer and other major health problems. Aside from causing cancer, many users also reported headaches, upper airway irritations, coughing, chest pressure, sinus infections, asthma, damage to their liver and kidneys, nausea, vomiting, and increased breathing problems.
Class Action Lawsuit
In June 2021, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Philips in Massachusetts. The lawsuit claims that Philips knew about the toxic foam and the severe health issues it was causing people for years. There are claims that users had been complaining about the issues for many years, but Philips didn’t issue a public warning until April 2021. It was another two months, June 14th, 2021, before Philips recalled the devices. Interestingly, Philips didn’t announce the recall of their machines until right around the time that they were coming out with a newer device. Many patients who desperately need these devices had no choice but to purchase the newer machine, meaning Philips continued to profit even after they made the recall of their current machine public.
