Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 04, 2013 -- Somnetics International, Inc., the Minneapolis-based maker of Transcend® Sleep Apnea Therapy System™, announced that it received CE Mark for the Transcend Heated Humidifier™ for Transcend sleep apnea therapy products.

Clarence Johnson, CEO and president of Somnetics International, Inc., said, “The Transcend Sleep Apnea Therapy System and Transcend Heated Humidifier is the most innovative and portable primary therapy system for use at home and on the road.”
