The FDA identified the Philips CPAP machines recall as a Class 1, the most serious type of recall
In June 2021, Philips Respironics issued a recall after revealing that several of its Sleep & Respiratory Care CPAP and BiPAP sleep apnea machines and ventilators had a defect that exposed users to toxic particles and gasses posing serious health risks to users. According to Philips, a type of foam used in the devices could break down into particles and potentially allow carcinogenic chemicals into the device’s air pathway that the user can inhale or swallow.
According to the FDA recall notice, the potential risks of particulate exposure include
- Irritation to the skin, eye, and respiratory tract
- Inflammatory response
- Toxic or carcinogenic effects to organs, such as the kidneys and liver
The potential risks of exposure to chemicals released into the device’s air pathway from the PE-PUR foam include
- Irritation in the eyes, nose, respiratory tract, and skin
- Toxic and carcinogenic effects
The FDA is currently analyzing medical device reports involving affected devices from 2009 to 2021 for issues that may be related to this defect.
