Why Were the Philips Ventilators Recalled?

Philips issued a voluntary recall of some of its ventilators and machines over concerns the PE-PUR sound abatement foam could degrade become toxic, and potentially cause cancer.

When the foam deteriorates, tiny particles and gases may be inhaled or ingested. There is ongoing research to determine whether the inhaled or ingested particles could potentially cause lung injuries such as lung scarring, sarcoidosis, or pulmonary fibrosis.

Research is also being performed to determine whether the inhaled or ingested particles could potentially cause nasal, throat, or lung cancers, or blood cancers such as multiple myeloma and leukemia.

What Should I Do if I’m Using a Recalled Philips Ventilator?

If you or a loved one are using one of the recalled Philips ventilators, Philips says you should speak with your physician to figure out the best options for continued treatment.

Philips recognizes that alternate ventilator options for therapy may not exist or may be severely limited for patients who require a ventilator for life-sustaining therapy, or in cases where disruption is unacceptable,” the recall notice states. “In these situations, and at the discretion of the treating clinical team, the benefit of continued usage of these ventilator devices may outweigh the risks.

Philips has begun replacing the PE-PUR foam in the recalled machines with new material.

Tell your doctor about any symptoms you have that may be related to the use of a recalled Philips ventilator.
