Providien, LLC | | Thursday, September 15, 2011


Providien, LLC announced it recently acquired respiratory products manufacturer Emergent Respiratory, LLC (www.eresp.com). Emergent Respiratory develops and manufactures clinically superior respiratory equipment and supplies for the pre-hospital and hospital markets. Emergent’s flagship product is the PortO2Vent, an advanced respiratory device that provides CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) and assists spontaneously breathing patients in prehospital and hospital emergency room environments. Emergent’s PortO2Vent improves patient outcomes by decreasing ICU admissions, decreasing exposure to infections, and ultimately shortening hospital stays. In addition, CPAP therapy has proven successful with patients because it is non-invasive, easily adjustable, does not require sedation, and is comfortable for users. Moreover, CPAP offers significant economic benefits to patients, emergency medical providers and hospitals by avoiding the potentially substantial healthcare costs of long-term treatment.

Providien President and CEO, Jeff Goble, commented, “The acquisition of Emergent fits well with our corporate strategy to provide world class medical devices to the growing healthcare industry.” Hecontinues, “We are confident that our Emergent PortO2Vent technology will significantly impact the prehospital and hospital markets as the therapy continues to grow in adoption by medical providers.”

For questions or more information on the PortO2Vent CPAP system, please contact Emergent Respiratory, LLC at info@eresp.com or 760-444-3063.
