Airon Corporation announced today that it has selected SenTec Inc., USA, as a distributor for its pNeuton line of pneumatic transport ventilators and its MACS CPAP in select regions of the United States, including Midwest, major portions of New England and Mid-Atlantic, as well as Georgia and Florida. The agreement includes distribution of four products: pNeuton Model A and pNeuton Mini in hospitals, and the pNeuton Model S and MACS CPAP for Emergency Management Systems (EMS).
