Zenith Award from American Association for Respiratory Care for Support of Respiratory Therapists Is Awarded to Vapotherm

December 4, 2020

Zenith Award from American Association for Respiratory Care for Support of Respiratory Therapists was awarded to Vapotherm.

American Association for Respiratory Care presents the award to only six out of more than 300 manufacturers, supply organizations, and supply companies based on ranking in criteria including product quality, accessibility and helpfulness of personnel, responsiveness, service record, truth in advertising, and support of the respiratory care profession. Recipients are selected by the popular vote of AARC members in the respiratory care profession.

“We’re honored to receive the AARC Zenith Award,” said Joe Army, Vapotherm’s President and CEO. “Making our customers and their Patients a top priority is a core tenet for the Vapotherm team. This award is even more meaningful given that it is from the dedicated Respiratory Care professionals who continue to demonstrate front-line heroism during one of the most challenging years ever experienced. Thank you, Patient care colleagues, for all you and your teams are doing.”

Vapotherm increased production capacities and expanded field support teams in order to rapidly provide support during the COVID-19 pandemic. Partnering with AARC Specialty Practitioner of the Year, Felix Khusid RRT, Vapotherm launched the FELIX-1 Negative Pressure Scavenger Kit. The company also launched an open-access online learning platform, Vapotherm Academy, which has over 21,000 clinicians enrolled, in addition to its existing continuing clinical education programs.

AARC established the AARC Zenith Award in 1989 and this is the first year AARC selected Vapotherm as a recipient of the award. AARC announced the 2020 AARC Zenith Award recipients by live-stream in conjunction with the virtual 66th International Respiratory Congress on December 3rd.
