  • Quality of equipment, supplies or services;
  • Accessibility and helpfulness of sales personnel;
  • Responsiveness;
  • Service record;
  • Truth in advertising; and
  • Support of the respiratory care profession.

“We are extremely proud of our long-standing relationship with the AARC and exceptionally grateful that its members have honored our company with this award for the ninth time,” said Edwin Coombs, MA, RRT-NPS, ACCS, FAARC, director of marketing, Intensive Care, Dräger. “The fact that the Zenith Award is a people’s choice award for the respiratory community, voted on by those individuals who are using our solutions everyday, makes it all the more meaningful.
