For the second consecutive year, Ikaria Holdings Inc, a fully integrated critical care biopharmaceutical company, has been awarded the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) Zenith Award. Ikaria was one of five companies to win the award in a field of more than 400 eligible organizations. The award was presented to the company in December at the AARC’s 53rd Annual International Respiratory Congress in Orlando, Fla.

The award, AARC’s top industry recognition award, is presented to companies selected by the organization’s 44,000 members based upon the quality of equipment and/or supplies, accessibility, and helpfulness of sales personnel, responsiveness, service record, truth in advertising, and support of the respiratory care profession.
