The FDA Issued a Recall on Philips CPAPs That Could Affect Your Case
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled several Philips products, including their CPAP, over concerns with its polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam. Studies show that Philips CPAP users may inhale or swallow this toxic carcinogen, which can cause many life-threatening health issues.
Some complications include:
- Organ damage, especially involving the kidney, liver, and lungs
- Irritation to the skin, eyes, nose, and respiratory tract
- Nausea and vomiting
The American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine also reports instances of upper airway irritation, rhinitis and sinusitis, coughs, chest pressure, and dizziness.
