Why did Philips Recall Its CPAP Machines?
Philips recalled over a dozen CPAP machines after allegations that the devices caused cancer. But how? Well:
- Sleep apnea patients strap the CPAP machine to their face using a mouthpiece or nosepiece. Both pieces are insulated with foam.
- The foam from the CPAP machines could break off and enter users’ airways.
- The body cannot process the foam. Inhaling the foam can cause cancer, kidney damage, and liver problems.
Claimants allege that Philips knew about its defective products, but didn’t issue a recall until people started filing lawsuits. For this reason, Philips could owe injured claimants millions of dollars in damages.
Don’t Stop Using Your CPAP Machine Until You’ve Talked to Your Doctor
After learning that your Philips CPAP machine was recalled, you might consider discontinuing treatment. You should talk to your doctor before doing this. They can explain whether using your CPAP machine is safe.
They might also suggest other forms of treatment, which may include:
- Lifestyle changes
- Other machines
- Different sleeping positions
- Assistive aids
If you stop treatment without consulting your doctor, you risk exacerbating your health condition.

You Have Legal Options If You Suffered Harm from a CPAP Machine
If you used a Philips CPAP machine and suffered harm (or lost a loved one), you can:
Pursue Compensation through an Insurance Claim
Your lawyer may start your case by filing a claim with Philips. Here, they’ll manage all necessary communications, present your damages’ cost, and negotiate for what you need. They’ll also calculate your losses based on your situation, so they can aim for a fair offer.
Seek Financial Recovery through a Lawsuit
Philips is a billion-dollar company that sells products all over the world. However, despite having massive funds, it might not accept your insurance claim. Instead, Philips may argue that your condition is unrelated to your sleep apnea machine.
To promote your lawsuit’s success, your lawyer will abide by all necessary deadlines, gather evidence to support your case, and present your case in court.
