Established in 1992, Westmed is a vertically integrated ISO 9001 medical device manufacturing company. The company develops, manufactures and markets disposable anesthesia and respiratory medical devices. In 1997 Westmed merged with Vortran Medical Technologies, a market leader in aerosol delivery with its patented HEART nebulizers. Westmed soon after acquired the assets of Medtrac Technologies, a leader in developing and manufacturing drug compliance and outcomes monitors for respiratory mediums. The merger and acquisition positioned the company for continued growth and established it as a product leader in the respiratory market.
