Are you still using one of the Philips defective CPAP, BiPAP or other ventilator machines? Have you experienced any serious health problems? Are you aware that the sound abatement foam can break down and lead to health problems?
Minor symptoms you could experience:
Long term health concerns such as the following may surface:
Ingested or inhaled foam particles or chemical gases may lead to carcinogenic, toxic or respiratory side effects.
As always, you should speak with your health provider about any symptoms or concerns you have.
The recalled devices have sound abatement foam liners that can break down and release particles that can be inhaled or ingested; these devices have no filter to prevent this from happening. The foam also can emit vapors of toxic chemicals beyond the safe exposure level.
The foam is more likely to break down with older devices and devices that are used more often. Climate and environmental conditions (i.e., high heat and humidity in locations where devices are stored) can exacerbate the breakdown. Also, according to Philips, unapproved cleaning processes, such as ozone or ultraviolet light can worsen foam degradation.
You should know that CPAP sleep apnea machines, in general, have side effects that may not be caused by the toxic foam; however, if you have a concern, talk with your health provider.
