Air Liquide’s sleep apnea support programme


Air Liquide, together with its subsidiary VitalAire, is launching a new, personalised support program for sleep apnea patients in France, further building on its increasingly global participation in this field.

A little known disorder which can lead to serious complications, sleep apnea affects 1.5 million people in France, and 5% of the world’s adult population.

The standard treatment for sleep apnea is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), handled daily and in the patient’s home. Air Liquide is a major global player in this field while in Europe, the group provides services for 15% of all patients – working alongside their doctors.

Air Liquide is further strengthening its international position following recent acquisitions in the Netherlands (Comcare Medical) and Tunisia (Air Separation).
