Recall Information

Why were the machines recalled?

CPAP/BiPAP  machines create a constant, pressurized airflow to help maintain an open airway and address a range of health conditions, including sleep apnea. Philips has utilized polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam to dampen device vibration and sound during routine operation. 

However, the company received reports that this foam can degrade or dissolve over time, enter the device’s air pathway and be ingested or inhaled by users.

There is evidence that  Phillips  was concerned that cleaning devices commonly used on the machines were contributing to the problems. The foam has also been shown to  emit toxic chemicals, including carbolic acid, that can be inhaled by users of the machine.
