Recently, the FDA labeled certain Philips CPAP, BiPAP Sleep machines and ventilators for recall. Some of these defective devices include the System One Q series, Dreamstation, Dorma, REMstar, OmniLab and Triology. Unfortunately, they have been linked to various cancers and respiratory problems, including COPD.
Apparently, the deadening Polyurethane foam, which has long been known to be hazardous, inside the machines has a tendency to decompose and emit cancer-causing gases. In fact, the chemicals benzene, formaldehyde, Methylene chlorine and/or other volatile organic compounds are inhaled during use. Furthermore, there is a link to leukemia and other cancers including brain, bladder, blood, breast, kidney, liver, lung, lymphatic, nasal, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, prostate, rectal, spleen, stomach, testicular and that of the thyroid.
If you own and or know a loved one who utilizes one of these Philips CPAP, BiPAP, and/or ASV sleep apnea machines for at least six months, discuss alternative solutions with a physician immediately to discontinue their use.
