Philips CPAP Machine Recall Lawsuit in Austin, Texas

More than eight million people in the United States use continuous positive airway pressure machines, or CPAP machines, to help counter sleep apnea symptoms so they can sleep safely.

Recent studies report the number of CPAP users is increasing by 9% each year.

For new and existing CPAP users alike, the reliability of safe CPAP machines is required to ensure their health is not jeopardized during use.

Unfortunately, that is not true for all CPAP users.

Certain Philips CPAP sleep apnea machines are causing severe illnesses and injuries because of their defective parts.  Some of the more serious illnesses include kidney, liver, lung, colon, and other cancers.

Some users have died from heart failure and heart attacks, leaving family members reeling from their losses.

If you have suffered injuries from using a CPAP machine or have tragically lost a loved one from the defective product’s use, we can help.

Which Philips CPAP Sleep Apnea Machines Are Causing Health Problems and Fatalities in Texas?

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the throat muscles intermittently relax and block the airway during sleep, which causes sufferers to repeatedly stop and start breathing.

This medical condition is often treated with the use of CPAP machines to ensure the airway is continuously open, so the person sleeping can breathe continuously throughout the night.

To effectively use the apparatus, sleep apnea patients place a mask tightly over their mouth and nose before going to sleep to create a seal that keeps the continuously pumping air inside and helps reduce the sound associated with its use.

Recently, research and product recalls have presented evidence that certain Philips CPAP machines are being sold and used with defective Polyurethane Foam that seals the mask around the nose and mouth. The degradation of the foam over time is causing users to inhale the dangerous particles while they sleep.

In June 2021, Philips recalled all CPAP devices manufactured before April 26, 2021.

With a dozen years of use behind them, some users unknowingly suffered injuries and illnesses before the devices were recalled by the manufacturer.

Our Austin, Texas CPAP litigation attorneys believe that when sleep apnea patients effectively use their CPAP devices, they should not become ill or injured because of a manufacturing defect.
