Potential settlement compensation amounts in these CPAP machine lawsuits. Sleep apnea refers to a condition where breathing becomes very shallow or stops temporarily during sleep. This can lead you to suffer from fatigue and headaches as well as hypertension, heart attacks, stroke, and hypertension. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure CPAP therapy (Continuous Positive Airflow Therapy) is the best treatment for sleep apnea. CPAP therapy delivers positive airflow through a mask placed over the nose, mouth, and throat. This creates enough internal pressure to stop the person’s breathing at night from collapsing. These machines can also be used to treat sleep apnea. Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP, and Automatic Positive Airway Pressure – APAP) machines. CPAP refers to continuous positive air pressure (continuous) treatment. The positive air pressure assists with breathing and keeps the airway clear. CPAP uses a mask to cover the nose, mouth and throat while the patient is sleeping. CPAP treatment prevents the patient from suffering from respiratory depression by forcing air into their airways when they are blocked. A CPAP works perfectly and is a fantastic medical device. CPAP can be used to treat sleep apnea. This is even better than surgery. CPAP is a great option for patients suffering from sleep apnea. It can reduce the patient’s apnea/hypopnea index. The demand for CPAP devices has increased significantly in recent years. CPAP machine demand has risen significantly due to Covid-19. Philips CPAP sales brought in $6 billion revenue in 2020. CPAPs are generally It should be done as it is intended . This machine can be used to treat obstructive or persistent sleep apnea. Philips is facing a flood of lawsuits stemming from defective CPAP machines. A new “class-action”, which focuses on the consolidated management of the CPAP recall product responsibility lawsuits, has been established. MDL Class Action is a pathway for victims to bring a CPAP complaint with relative ease. Philips DreamStation CPAP Machines Philips is a medical devices and equipment manufacturer that makes a variety sleep apnea machines including CPAP, BiPAP, and BiPAP. Philips’s main CPAP line is sold under “ DreamStation ” brand name. This product range includes the DreamStation CPAP machine (original) and the DreamStation Go (travel-sized). These products include: Extremely profitable Medical device companies Philip’s DreamStation CPAP/BiPAP machines all use a special kind of polyester polyurethane (PE-PUR) foam. PE-PUR foam is used to silence DreamStation CPAP machine sounds. Safety Recall for DreamStation Machines for CPAP Philips made public a recall of 14 models of CPAP/BiPAP breathing machines and the DreamStation line on June 14, 2021. Philips stated that the 2021 CPAP recall resulted from the discovery that PE-PUR foam in the machines might break down and become inhaled. The PEPU foam contains volatile organic chemicals (“VOCs”) that can cause cancer and damage internal organs. The problem is with PE-PUR polyurethane foam. Polyester polyurethane easily breaks down in heat, sunlight, ultraviolet, moisture, fungal attack and oxygen. If your machine was exposed too high in humidity or temperature, then you may be at greater risk. In nearly all personal injury lawsuits like this, defendants vigorously deny that the product is defective. Philips Respironics is openly admitting that inhaling the PEPU foam by CPAP users could cause severe and even life-threatening harm to the respiratory tract. Philips has released a statement entitled “Clinical info for physicians” in which he identifies the following risks associated with PE-PUR foam inhalation and ingestion.
  4. Patients with cardiopulmonary and underlying conditions such as a swollen or itchy lung may experience irritation and airway inflammation.
  5. Headaches, dizziness and dizziness
  6. Sinus infection and pressure in the chest
  7. Toxic or “carcinogenic effects”
  8. Damage to the kidneys, liver, and other internal organs
