Philips CPAP Lawsuit Attorney in New York

Millions of Americans use machines to help with sleep apnea, a condition marked by disruptions in breathing during sleep. Philips, a large multinational corporation, is among the many companies that manufacture ventilator devices to treat sleep apnea. Recently, Philips voluntarily recalled certain CPAP machines and ventilators because using them can increase cancer risk.

In a recent announcement, Philips disclosed that the sound abatement foam in some of their ventilator devices can degrade into particles that might enter the air pathway and be inhaled by the user. The company also said this foam might off-gas toxic chemicals. These particulate matter and gases could cause cancer. According to Phillips, foam degradation might be increased by using unapproved cleaning methods. High heat and humidity environments could also contribute to the degradation.

Approximately 3.5 million Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP), Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), and ventilators are equipped with this foam and are all being pulled from the market. While Phillips says they are taking action to remedy the dangers associated with its CPAP machines and ventilators, it could be too late for the many users of these defective devices.

You might consider filing a lawsuit if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer after using a Philips Bi-Level Positive Airway Pressure (Bi-Level PAP) or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). You could be owed compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.

    What If I Believe a Foam Degradation Caused My Cancer?

    Despite a low complaint rate (0.03%), Philips determined from their testing that there are possible risks to users related to the type of foam in their CPAP machines. The risks include that the foam might degrade into toxic particles.

    At this point, it’s difficult to determine exactly how pervasive the health risks are from inhaling the toxic degraded foam particles. If you’ve used one of these devices, we recommend that you talk about the recall with your family doctor.

    If you’re experiencing health issues, including cancer, related to foam degradation, talk to your family doctor or an oncologist as soon as possible. Your doctor might recommend further testing for cancers caused by toxic foam exposure. After discussing your concerns with a physician, consult an experienced defective product lawyer.
