CPAP and BiPAP Sleep Apnea Machines

A Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine is commonly prescribed to treat sleep apnea disorders. The machine sends a steady flow of oxygen into the mouth and nose while someone sleeps. In addition to CPAP devices, other breathing machines include APAP and BiPAP devices. They are all designed to help someone breath normally during sleep.

Diamond~Massong is investigating injury claims related to the use of Philips CPAP sleep apnea machines. In June 2021, Philips Respironics issued a recall for its CPAP and BiPAP machines, as well as for its mechanical ventilator devices, because of potential health risks due to the inhalation or injection of foam particles when the sound-reducing polyurethane foam liner degrades into particles. Philips estimates that 3 to 4 million devices may be affected, most of which are first-generation DreamStation products sold before April 2021.

Inhaling or swallowing the polyurethane foam particles can lead to serious, even life-threatening, injuries. If you or a loved one used a Philips sleep apnea machine for 6 months or longer and have been diagnosed with a serious medical condition, including lung disease/damage, liver disease/damage, kidney disease/damage, or cancer, please contact Diamond~Massong for a free consultation.

“We have been Maria’s clients since the mid-1990’s and developed more than an attorney-client relationship. One of our cases resulted in the need for extensive surgery, and we struggled with our insurance to cover the cost of the initial surgery and recovery. Maria was instrumental in resolving all of these issues. Successful legal representation can only be judged by the outcome and the client’s overall satisfaction. In our case, we have been more than pleased with the results and Maria’s expertise.” Rose and David F-W
