Philips CPAP, BiPAP Sleep Apnea Machines and Ventilators Recall Class Action

Documents

CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a class action lawsuit against Philips in relation to the recall of its sleep apnea machines, including CPAP and BiPAP, and ventilators, which may increase users’ risk of cancer and pulmonary fibrosis, and cause other injuries such as headaches, irritation, inflammation, respiratory issues, and exposure to materials with toxic and carcinogenic effects.

On June 14, 2021, Philips announced a recall of many of its Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) machines, which are used to treat sleep apnea, and ventilators, which treat respiratory failure. The recalled products contain polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) foam for sound abatement. It has now been revealed that the PE-PUR foam may break down and be inhaled or ingested and may emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) resulting in adverse effects to organs, and even cancer. In an announcement to doctors, Philips explained that these hazards could result in “serious injury which can be life-threatening or cause permanent impairment.”

The recalled products include:

BIPAP AUTOSV WITH SMARTCARD INT
BIPAP AUTOSV WITH SMARTCARD INT, CORE PKG
BIPAP SYNCHRONY VENTILATORY SUPPORT SYSTEM WITH SMARTCARD
BIPAP SYNCHRONY VENTILATORY SUPPORT SYSTEM WITH SMARTCARD-CORE PACK
TRILOGY 100 VENTILATOR, CANADA
TRILOGY 100 VENTILATOR-INTERNATIONAL
BIPAP AVAPS CORE PACKAGE, NORTH AMERICA
BIPAP AUTOSV ADVANCED/ENCORE SMARTCARD
BIPAP AUTOSV ADVANCED/ENCORE SMARTCARD/HEATED HUMIDIFIER
TRILOGY 200, CANADA
BIPAP A30 SYSTEM-VENTILATOR
BIPAP A30 SYSTEM-VENTILATOR & SYSTEM ONE A-SERIES HEATED HUMIDIFIER
BIPAP A40, CANADA
BIPAP A40, CANADA, CORE PACKAGE

Philips has no concrete timeline for replacing the recalled devices even though patients need to use their devices every day. As a result, the recall leaves patients without safe, free options, and patients are going to be forced to buy or rent Philips’ next-generation product or a competitor’s product.
