Somentics Exhibiting at 2011 SLEEP Conf

Minneapolis, MN (June 8, 2011) – Somnetics International, Inc. will be on hand to exhibit Transcend, the world’s smallest CPAP, at the upcoming 25th Anniversary Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, Inc. This year’s meeting is to be held in at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Associated Professional Sleep Societies, Inc. is a joint venture of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society.

The SLEEP Meeting attracts the largest audience of sleep specialists in the nation. It is the only five-day meeting in the nation with scientific sessions and an exhibition hall focused solely on sleep medicine and sleep research. Nearly 6,000 physicians, researchers, sleep technologists, students and other allied healthcare professionals are expected to attend. Over 50% of attendees specialize in sleep medicine.

Somnetics is pleased to be an exhibitor at this event and will be showcasing Transcend, a new wearable sleep apnea therapy device designed to be the ultimate travel CPAP.  Transcend fits the travel needs of sleep apnea patients and overcomes hurdles associated with using a bulky, hassle-ridden traditional sleep machine including:

  • it is the smallest, most portable CPAP available
  • it weighs less than 1 lb, making it the lightest CPAP on the market
  • it uses low power consumption
  • battery pack and mobile power options allows for CPAP use in remote locations
  • a small, hygienic heat moisture exchanger for humidification replaces the water-filled humidification chamber
  • it’s universal AC power supply automatically converts power current outside the United States
  •  it automatically compensates therapy pressure to altitudes of up to 8,000 feet
  •  it is FAA compliant
