On June 14th, Philips announced a recall of many of its Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (“CPAP”) and Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (“BiPAP”) machines, and ventilators, due to an increased risk of cancer and other injuries. CPAP and BiPAP machines are used to treat sleep apnea, and ventilators are used to treat respiratory failure.

The products in question contain polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) foam for sound abatement. It’s now known that the PE-PUR foam may break down and be inhaled or injested, which may emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) resulting in potential harm to organs, and cancer.
