Philips Recalls 4 Million+ CPAP & Breathing Machines

Philips’ device recall was announced in June, 2021. The recall involves millions of Sleep Apnea devices which may increase the risk of lung injury and cancer due to inhalation of dangerous particles and potentially harmful gases from toxic chemicals used in a proprietary foam. The majority of units recalled thus far include DreamStation products originally sold prior to April 2021.

The recalled Philips CPAP and ventilator devices have been linked to an increased risk of airway contamination, chemical exposure, and possible cancer. The problem is related to polyester-based (“PE-PUR”) foam which is a sound-dampening component used across various models of these kinds of devices. “PE-PUR” foam can possibly deteriorate into tiny particles. These particles may then get into the machine’s airway, eventually being ingested by the wearer of the device. This foam may also be prone to produce a chemical byproduct in a process known as “off-gassing.” Off-gassed chemical can be highly dangerous to the user.

About BiPAP and CPAP Machines

Both BiPAP (Bi-level Positive Airway Pressure) and CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machines are devices used to treat Sleep Apnea. According to Healthline.com, These devices work by utilizing “Positive Airway Pressure Therapy” which utilizes compressed air to keep the airway open during sleep.

CPAP machines treat Sleep Apnea by delivering a stream of oxygenated air into your airways through a mask and a tube. The pressurized air prevents the user’s airways from collapsing, which allows you to breathe continuously while sleeping.

While a CPAP machine delivers an airstream at one steady pressure, BiPAP machines change the pressure according to your inhaling and exhaling needs.

About Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is a disorder that impacts the breathing of approximately 5% of the population. According to MayoClinic.org, Sleep Apnea is a disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Central Sleep Apnea and Complex Sleep Apnea Syndrome are the 3 main types of Sleep Apnea.

 

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea occurs when throat muscles relax

  • Central Sleep Apnea occurs when your brain doesn't send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing

  • Complex Sleep Apnea Syndrome, or “Treatment-Emergent Central Sleep Apnea,” occurs when someone has both obstructive Sleep Apnea and Central Sleep Apnea
