ITC Agrees To Investigate BMC Medical On ResMed's Request

The International Trade Commission (ITC) has agreed to investigate BMC Medical and its distributors, 3B Medical and 3B Products. The investigation was initiated at the request of ResMed. ResMed also filed suit in federal court against BMC in May, asserting patent infringement by: the RESmart CPAP and RESmart auto CPAP devices; and the Willow nasal pillows patient interface and the iVolve nasal mask.

ResMed pursued a similar legal action earlier in 2013 against Apex Medical, asserting patent infringement that resulted in Apex consenting to an order barring infringing products from the US market.
