Important Update

The FDA just dropped an update on that Philips sleep apnea machine recall, and it's quite an eye-opener. They're saying these machines might be connected to a whopping 561 reported deaths.

Since April 2021, the FDA has been flooded with over 116,000 reports about these respiratory devices. They've been breaking down and causing some serious health risks. This includes talking, choking, inhaling weird particles, and even an increased chance of cancer.

These devices, used for sleep apnea and similar disorders, were made with a foam called polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR). However, this foam breaks down over time, and the little bits can end up in the airways of the people using them. The FDA warns you might end up breathing in these "black pieces of foam" or some invisible chemicals.

After the first recall of over 5 million devices in 2021, Philips tried to sort out the issue. But they still fail to meet safety standards or consumer expectations.

Philips has now agreed to stop selling these devices in the U.S., primarily because of the filing of a proposed class action settlement.

Phillips® Brand CPAP & BIPAP Device Damage FAQ: Questions the Health Risks

What Does the Government Say About The Health Risks?

The FDA has reported that when the foam breaks down, the material can move through the device and be inhaled or ingested. The agency said users could experience headaches, asthma, inflammatory conditions, respiratory tract problems, and “toxic or cancer-causing effects to organs,” among other health complications.

The FDA has advised consumers with recalled machines to consult their doctors about the best course of action, noting that some users may face more significant health risks if they stop using them altogether.

What Does Phillips® Say About the Health Risks?

When the recall was announced, Phillips® reported that the defect could cause short- and long-term health risks, including life-threatening conditions. Previously, two internal health hazard evaluations launched by Phillips® had concluded that the risk to people who used the machines was “unacceptable.”

In recent months, Phillips® has reported that initial testing was limited and based on a “worst-case scenario” and that new tests on the DreamStation® and similar devices have found the foam breakdown is “unlikely to result in an appreciable harm to health in patients.”

How Can I Register for a Replacement CPAP Machine or Other Device?

Customers whose machines were recalled are supposed to be able to get replacements from Phillips®, which has a patient registration site.

Though Phillips® has said millions of replacement devices have been sent out, customers have reported the process is riddled with delays.

To register, Phillips® requires the recalled device's name and serial number. The company also requires a current doctor’s prescription.
