AirWare Labs files CPAP patent

Thursday, November 6, 2014

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – AirWare Labs filed a patent application for a new CPAP treatment system that replaces bulky CPAP masks with a streamlined nasal design. "The complaints and physical discomfort associated with conventional CPAP masks often result in a patient's refusal to use them,” said Dan Pool, vice president of product development, “which defeats the whole purpose." AirWare Labs’ design will eliminate dryness and irritation due to the system’s high flow nasal cannula, which will increase airflow by up to 60% and diffuse the flow of air as it enters the nasal passage.
