On June 30, 2021, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an official communication recalling certain Philips Respironics ventilators, BiPAP, and CPAP machines. Subsequently, on July 22, 2021, the FDA issued another official communication identifying the recall as a Class I recall, “the most serious type of recall” because these devices “may cause serious injuries or death.”
Why were certain Philips ventilator machines recalled?
According to the FDA, certain Philips ventilators contained polyester-based polyurethane (PE-PUR) sound abatement foam. This foam may break down, enter the machine’s air pathway, and be inhaled or swallowed by the user. Exposure to PE-PUR can cause a multitude of serious personal injury, including, but not limited to the following:
- Skin, eye, and respiratory tract irritation
- Organ damage (especially to the liver and kidneys)
- Possibly cancer
