About Philips CPAP Lawsuit

Philips has voluntarily recalled their Bi-level Positive Airway Pressure(Bi-PAP), Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and mechanical ventilator devices in June 2021. The reason for the recall is the potential health risks due to the polyester-based polyurethane sound abetment foam component and its degradation. It is emitting outgas or causing toxic air and carcinogen ingestion for the patient. The products from the first generation DreamStation range are included in the recalled devices.

The company is getting sued because they failed to warn the customers in the user manual about how harmful the device can be for the patient. As a result, many are at risk now, suffering from lung injuries and cancer. If you or your loved one has been in the same condition, then seek help from a Youngstown CPAP lawyer.
