Lake Wales, FL Aug 22, 2014- An Administrative Law Judge issued an initial decision in the ResMed action in the ITC. 3B/BMC successfully invalidated one of ResMed’s patents covering masks, and successfully defended against 3 out of 4 claims of ResMed’s patent covering the humidifier on the CPAP machines. 3B/BMC is preparing to petition the Commission to invalidate the remaining claim to clear 3B/BMC’s CPAP from future implications.

3B/BMC is prepared for either outcome at the Commission. Engineers have already redesigned products to satisfy the decision. 3B/BMC will immediately move the redesigns into production and inventory to insure that there are no commercial disruptions to supply and to continue to bring unparalleled value to the sleep therapy product space.
