How Long Does It Take for a Defective Sleep Apnea Device to Cause Cancer?

Before delving into the subject, it is important to mention that not everyone who used a defective Philips CPAP, BiPAP, or ASV sleep apnea machine or ventilator will develop cancer.

However, the risk of coming to struggle with cancer becomes significant if you have been using your faulty sleep apnea device for 6 months or longer. This is because the polyurethane foam that is present in these devices to muffle sound and vibration gradually deteriorates and releases toxic chemicals in the air you are breathing.

There are more factors that may influence your cancer risk after using a sleep apnea device, such as:

In conclusion, there is no precise answer to this question, as everyone is different in terms of body, cancer predisposition, and sensitivity to the toxic chemicals released by polyurethane foam. Nevertheless, if you experience unusual symptoms, we advise you to seek medical attention as soon as possible, as a timely cancer diagnosis can be life-saving. In the regrettable case you are diagnosed with cancer, do not hesitate to reach out to our team, who will carefully assess your claim eligibility.
