Class Action Lawsuits

Sleep apnea is a condition that is seen in some individuals who are obese, smokers, opioid users as well as those with a familial history of the same. Left untreated, sleep apnea may rob the brain of much-needed oxygen during sleep and cause fatigue the morning after, cognitive issues, the development of metabolic syndrome and even cardiac complications over time. To this end, doctors often prescribe machines known as CPAP and BiPAP which fit snugly over the mouth and nose of the apnea patient, helping keep their airways open for the duration of sleep, thereby alleviating the condition. However, the FDA has recently issued a notice recalling certain CPAP and BiPAP brands when it was discovered that the plastic foam contained in these machines have the tendency to break down and may be inhaled by the CPAP or BiPAP wearer, causing health complications and even cancer and inflammation in some cases.

In June of this year, Philips issued a recall notice for some of its CPAP machine models due to the risk of cancer from particulate inhaled by patients that had the tendency or likelihood of falling apart. The offending agent is the polyurethane sound abatement form which is found inside the machine that is used to dampen and cancel out machine sound as it is being used by the patient. In addition, the CPAP cancer risk is alleged to be higher if individuals used ozone cleaning for their CPAP machines, as well as individuals living in hot or humid areas where it is more likely for the foam to break down.

Here are the CPAP and BiPAP machines mentioned in the Philips CPAP recall:

  • Dorma 400
  • Dorma 500
  • OmnilLab Advanced +
  • SystemOne ASV4
  • C-Series S/T and AVAPS
  • REMstar SE Auto
  • Philips E30

PE-PUR Foam, or polyethylene and polyurethane form have been shown to be extremely toxic to the human body. When inhaled or ingested, they have the potential to cause cellular changes and mutations on the DNA level which then sets off a cascade of events that lead to the development of cancer. What’s worrying about PE-PUR Foam is its inability to resist any form of degradation, like most plastics. Therefore, an individual may be diagnosed with cancer much later in life due to the slow and inexorable buildup of these two types of artificial compounds, which then reaches a critical mass that is sufficient enough to cause the development of various cancers.

Here are some of the cancers associated with PE-PUR Foam:

  • Brain cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Rectal cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Nasal cancer
  • Papillary carcinoma
  • Lymphatic cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Stomach cancer
  • Testicular cancer

Symptoms that may point to particle polyurethane particle inhalation:

  1. Chest pressure
  2. General inflammatory conditions
  3. Sensitivity to chemicals and the environment as well as allergies
  4. Asthma
  5. Airway inflammation
  6. Recurrent sinus infections
  7. An unrelenting cough
  8. Headache and migraines
