A polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam component is at the center of the investigations into the safety of the recalled Philips devices. Concerns surrounding the use of any medical device are normal. However, when several users report significant side effects, it is reasonable to feel that there may be serious long-term health implications.
If you have used any of the products under the first-generation DreamStation umbrella, Harman Law Firm can provide support and representation. Getting sick from these devices could lead to overwhelming pain and suffering, medical costs, loss of earnings (both present and future) and other financial losses directly connected to your symptoms and illness.
Philips Publication of Adverse Events
In the first quarter of 2021, Philips publicized information on identified side effects of CPAP and Bi-Level PAP devices. The test findings identified that PE-PUR foam has the potential to break down into small particles that may cause harm to human lungs.
Numerous other conditions, such as localized climate, unsuitable cleaning products and storage conditions, may cause unexpected foam degradation. While such outcomes are often well understood at the point of production or general release of a product to the public, no warnings for these adverse events relating to the first-generation DreamStation product family are included in the user manual.
