    Do you use a CPAP machine, in-home ventilator, or BiPAP machine?

    YOU COULD BE INHALING TOXIC SUBSTANCES

    On June 14, 2021, Philips issued a nationwide recall of nearly 4 MILLION Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP), Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), and mechanical ventilator devices after the defective machines were linked to various serious health conditions.

    According to the recall notice, a polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) foam used as a sound-abatement component in some models may degrade into particles that enter into the device’s air tube, causing users to inhale and/or ingest toxic substances that may be carcinogenic.

    Additionally, the foam may off-gas chemicals which may cause cancer, lung irritation, and organ damage.

    Philips indicated that the breakdown of the foam may be exacerbated by unapproved cleaning methods.

    On July 22, 2021, the FDA issued an official Class 1 recall of millions of Philips CPAP, BiPAP, and in-home ventilator machines. The FDA notes that a class 1 recall is “the most serious type of recall. Use of these devices may cause serious injuries or death.”
