Philips Respironics, the widely-trusted medical supply company, put out a notice of a recall for some of its CPAP and BiPAP devices in June of 2021. Their notice alerted customers of a potential health risk associated with the prolonged use of some of their devices used to treat sleep apnea. Many people who used these devices could now be facing serious health problems, such as cancer, asthma, and lung damage.
If this recall affects the device that you use and you were harmed, you may want to work with a Fort Myers Philips CPAP lawsuit lawyer. Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers offers free, no-obligation initial consultations. We can discuss your case and determine your next steps.
What Is the Danger Associated with Philips CPAP Machines?
According to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports, a noise-reducing material called polyester-based polyurethane foam (or PE-PUR foam) can break down inside these devices over time. This may have led to lung injuries for some users and increased their risk of developing various cancers.
The following devices were recalled:
- C-Series ASV
- C-Series S/T and AVAPS
- A-Series BiPAP A30
- A-Series BiPAP A40
- A-Series BiPAP V30 Auto
- DreamStation ASV
- DreamStation Go
- DreamStationST, AVAPS
- Dorma 400
- Dorma 500
- Garbin Plus, Aeris, LifeVent
- SystemOne ASV4
- SystemOne (Q-Series)
- OnmiLab Advanced+
- REMstar SE Auto
- Trilogy 100
- Trilogy 200
Speak with your doctor to learn more about alternative treatments if you are now using one of these defective devices.

Am I Eligible for Compensation?
If you’ve been affected by a faulty Philips CPAP machine and have experienced an injury as a result, you may be eligible for compensation. Remember that not all injuries will appear right away, and you may only be starting to notice symptoms now. However, being aware of your rights now will help you feel more prepared later on as you consider your legal options.
There are a few scenarios that would qualify for legal action against Philips Respironics. If you’ve experienced medical costs, trips to doctor’s offices because of your Philips CPAP machine, or now have a decreased capacity to work and make money, you may qualify to file a personal injury case.
Recoverable compensation may include:
- Medical bills (for past, present, and future medical expenses)
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Miscellaneous expenses related to the accident
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
Our team can also help you fight for compensation if you lost a loved one after they used a defective CPAP or BiPAP machine. The case against Philips is widespread and affects many people, so you could join the current multi-district litigation (MDL) action against Philips to seek damages.
