What is a CPAP ventilator?

A CPAP (Continuous Positive Air Pressure) ventilator is a machine that aids users with breathing obstructions in the upper respiratory tract. It is used by those who suffer from sleep apnea or to reduce the work of breathing in those with acute decompensated heart failure. Because the soundproofing material used to quiet the device breaks down over time, carcinogenic pieces of sound abatement foam have caused cancer and other serious illnesses. Certain CPAP ventilators pose serious illness and injuries to those who rely on them, and can even result in cancer and death. 

What are known symptoms of using faulty CPAP ventilators?

Known symptoms of the use of faulty CPAP machines include coughing, respiratory failure, and other toxic effects. Consistent use of faulty CPAP ventilators can develop into cancer, renal failure, asthma, and more. Some other issues you may experience include:

  • Upper airway irritation
  • Chest pressure 
  • Sinus infection
  • Inflammatory response
  • Asthma
  • Adverse effects to other organs (e.g. kidneys and liver) and more

What are the long-term side effects of faulty CPAP ventilator use?

Long term side effects of faulty CPAP ventilator use can include a variety of cancers such as lung, nasal, renal, stomach and more. You could also experience a heart attack, upper respiratory difficulties, and extreme pain while breathing.

What is the CPAP lawsuit all about?

CPAP manufacturer Philips Respironics was aware of the toxic effects of the soundproofing materials used in their products since the 2000s but continued to produce them. Philips Respironics behaved negligently. As a result, lawsuits all over the country are being filed by long term CPAP users that relied on the ventilators to breathe.

Can I expect a CPAP settlement?

If you or a loved one was affected by a faulty CPAP ventilator that directed toxic carcinogens into your airway then you may be able to file a CPAP lawsuit and receive a settlement. Settlements for CPAP claimants are meant to compensate consumers for their pain and suffering as well as financial losses that they’ve experienced such as medical expenses and lost wages.

How to know if you have a legal CPAP case

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with a serious illness after a recorded history of long-term CPAP usage then you could be eligible to file a CPAP settlement suit. Current lawsuits have alleged that manufacturer Philips Respironics knew that ventilators were faulty and did not properly warn the public of their dangers.
