Philips CPAP Lawsuit Attorneys
A Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine, or CPAP, is a medical device used to treat sleep apnea. For roughly 8 million Americans, CPAPs are a lifeline. Better sleep equals healthier, happier individuals.
But now, millions of Philips Respironics CPAP, BiPAP and ventilator machines are being recalled due to a possible risk of catastrophic injuries, including cancer.
The problem, they believe, is in the polyester-based sound abatement foam, which is used to reduce sound and vibration, but is now known to potentially break down and release toxic black particles or gases directly into the user’s airways, leading to health side effects like:
- Lung, Kidney, Liver, Colon and other cancers
- Heart Attack, Heart Failure or Stroke
- Respiratory Failure
- Liver Disease
- Kidney Disease
