Apnea Sciences Accelerates Patient Access to a New Sleep Apnea Treatment

Share Article

ApneaRx represents a new more affordable therapy for sleep apnea patients.

ApneaRx®, Apnea Sciences’ new micro-adjustable boil and bite sleep apnea appliance, was just introduced last month. ApneaRx, a prescription device, provides an affordable way to help sleep care practitioners determine who will be good candidates for more expensive custom oral appliance therapy. According to Patrick Maley, COO, “the big challenge of introducing a novel product like ApneaRx is that initial patient demand typically outstrips the number of sleep care practitioners around the country prescribing, or offering the device.” Randy Clare, sleep business leader for CareFusion (distributor for ApneaRx) stated, “We have very quickly established national sales channels to make sure that sleep apnea patients can obtain ApneaRx while the sleep care provider market develops. Several well known apnea medical internet retailers have commenced selling ApneaRx. These internet retailers will help the patient to secure a prescription for ApneaRx from their treating sleep care practitioner. Essentially, these patients are acting as references by telling their friends and treating doctors about ApneaRx.”    

Sleeprestfully.com (866 923 2727) was the first company to carry ApneaRx. Darin Stewart, General Manager remarked, “ApneaRx is the first oral appliance we have carried. Its easy-to-use adjustment capabilities make it a perfect complement for our CPAP users wanting a treatment alternative while traveling. I used it myself and became a believer.”

Roberta Baron, President of CPAP Supplies Plus, http://www.cpapplus.com, (877 791 3195) commented, “Our customers want more treatment options for their sleep apnea. ApneaRx can not only be used as a predictor device for custom oral appliances, it can also be used in combination with CPAP therapy, or in lieu of chin straps for more comfort and/or reduced air pressure. ApneaRx’s capability of being fitted and adjusted by the practitioner, or patient makes it special.”

Easybreathe.com (866 564 2252) will launch ApneaRx in July. CEO, Nick Weiss, had this to say, “At Easybreathe.com, we’re 100% focused on making things easy for sleep apnea sufferers. ApneaRx is the only oral device that I’ve seen that meets our standards. By eliminating trips to the sleep specialist for fittings, and enabling 1 mm adjustments without screws, screw drivers or other devices, ApneaRx makes the overall experience easier for the patient. Easybreathe.com truly believes that making things easy for patients improves compliance and drives better outcomes.”
