Things can get complicated if you own a Philips CPAP machine and want to get your money back. Philips states that to receive a full refund:
- You will need to follow the return process accessible through your MyPhilips Account.
- You must have purchased your device within the last 30 days.
You may be entitled to legal compensation if you have used a Philips CPAP machine nightly and have developed injuries or worsened symptoms.
Philips has Recalled CPAPs and Ventilator Machines
Philips Respironics has recalled millions of ventilators, BiPAP, and CPAP machines since the end of June 2021. This recall is because the foam contained in these machines (used to reduce vibration and maintain silence) can break down and travel into the body. This causes severe health issues such as respiratory failure, cancer, and other physical ailments.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified this recall as Class I, meaning the product can cause irreversible injury and even death.

Am I Eligible for Compensation?
You may be entitled to compensation if you or one of your family members have been using Philips’ ventilators, BiPAP, or CPAP machines and have developed any of the following symptoms the FDA specifies:
- Chest pressure
- Toxic or carcinogenic effects to organs like the kidneys and liver
- Irritation to eyes, skin, and respiratory tract
- Respiratory conditions
If you or one of your family members has developed one of these diseases or symptoms during the continuous use of a CPAP machine, you may be eligible for compensation. The compensation you may be entitled to will depend on the severity of the ailment and the strength of the case in question.
What Should I Do If I Use a CPAP Machine?
If you use a CPAP machine, speak to your doctor before stopping your use of the device. Your medical team might recommend continuing to use the device, as it might be less detrimental than stopping.
Speak to your lawyer to determine if your device is defective and affected by the recall. The FDA reports that DreamStation CPAP; Pro, Auto (All Configurations), DreamStation BiPAP; Pro, Auto (All Configurations) and DreamStation ST, ASV, AVAPS (All Configurations) are among the products affected.
Finally, you should register your device on the Philips website and report any problems with your device using the FDA’s MedWatch Online Voluntary Reporting Form.
