Circadiance enters global pediatric market
EXPORT, Pa. – Circadiance has acquired the SmartMonitor and NeoPAP product lines, including the infant apnea monitoring and PAP technologies associated with the lines, from Philips Respironics, the company announced today. The move allows Circadiance, manufacturer of the SleepWeaver soft cloth CPAP masks, to enter the global pediatric respiratory market. “Home infant cardiorespiratory monitoring is an established market dominated by SmartMonitor’s proven technology, which offers at-risk infants a smooth transition from hospital to home,” said David Groll, CEO of Circadiance, in a release. “NeoPAP represents the future of respiratory care in neonatal patients with respiratory distress syndrome. It’s an exciting combination that we intend to leverage with future innovation.” The transition is expected to be completed by the end of the week.
