Philips CPAP, BiPAP, and Mechanical Ventilators

If you or a loved one has developed cancer of the kidneys, liver, or lungs after using a Philips CPAP machine, BiPAP machine, or mechanical ventilator, we encourage you to reach out to the experienced personal injury attorneys at SWMW. You may be entitled to significant compensation from the manufacturer. Your story is important, and we’re here to listen and help.

SWMW Law is investigating and/or representing cases related to the use of specific Philips devices (listed below) due to potential health risks identified by the company.

Significant Risk of Cancer and Other Health Issues

On June 14, 2021, Philips Respironics issued a voluntary recall of certain mechanical ventilators, Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP), and Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines due to potential health risks, including cancer.

The recall was issued over concerns that foam liners in the machines may disintegrate or outgas, potentially resulting in the inhalation of contaminants and/or toxic chemicals. On July 23, 2021, the FDA designated the recall as Class I, its most serious level.

Potential health risks associated with the recalled Philips sleep apnea devices include:

  • Cancer (particularly in the kidneys, liver, and lungs)
  • Cough and chest pressure
  • Damage to kidneys, liver, or lungs
  • Headaches or dizziness
  • Sinus infection
