Philips CPAP and Ventilator Recalls

On June 14, Philips Healthcare Solutions announced a recall of between three and four million Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP), Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines and mechanical ventilator devices used to treat sleep apnea.

The recall announcement states that the polyester-based polyurethane noise-reducing foam used in the devices can break down over time, creating small particles that could be inhaled or ingested by users. As it degrades, this foam produces toxic gases which may cause harmful side effects.
