The Philips Respironics Remstar System One and Provent Therapy Systems were recalled in February of this year due to a risk of fire. Philips agreed to replace these models with the newer REMstar SE System One after an investigation found that certain electrical components could cause a fire. The company also agreed to issue refunds to consumers who had purchased the recalled devices before they were taken off the market, but now there is a class action lawsuit against them because some consumers claim that they did not receive their refund even though it was promised. The plaintiff in this case is seeking damages and legal fees for himself and all other similarly situated people who have not yet been reimbursed by Philips Respironics.

Examples of Inflated Pressure Settings on the Dreamstation Auto, Dreamstation Pro and Other Models by Philips Respironics
A recent class action lawsuit alleges that Philips Respironics knowingly sold defective and dangerous products, and refused to properly warn consumers about the risks. The company’s products have been found to deliver dangerously high levels of pressure, which can lead to serious health problems. There are more than 65 lawsuits pending against Philips Respironics, alleging their CPAP machines delivered inflated pressure settings that led to several adverse side effects including headaches, dizziness, nausea and blackouts. Plaintiffs in these cases allege they were never warned of the dangers associated with high-pressure settings on the Dreamstation Auto, Dreamstation Pro and other models by Philips Respironics.
