Millions of Americans use machines to treat sleep apnea, which is characterised by breathing disturbances while you’re asleep. One of the many firms that makes ventilator devices to treat sleep apnea is the sizable multinational organisation Philips. Recently, Philips announced a voluntary recall of specific CPAP units and ventilators due to the potential cancer risk associated with their use.
The sound-dampening foam in some of Philips’ ventilator equipment has the potential to degrade into particles that could enter the air channel and be breathed by the user, according to a recent notice. The manufacturer also warned that the foam could release hazardous substances. These gases and particulates may cause cancer. According to Phillips, the use of unauthorised cleaning techniques may accelerate foam breakdown. Environments with high temperatures and humidity may also hasten the breakdown.
The market is being evacuated of the 3.5 million Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP), Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), and ventilators that contain this foam. While Phillips claims to be taking steps to address the risks posed by its ventilators and CPAP machines, it might already be too late for the numerous users of these flawed products.
You may wish to think about bringing a case against Philips if you were diagnosed with cancer after using a Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP) or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP).
