Respironics Files for Inter Partes Review of ZOLL Medical’s Patient Monitoring Patent

Respironics, Inc., a subsidiary of Koninklijke Philips N.V., filed a petition last Friday with the Patent Trial and Appeal Board requesting inter partes review of ZOLL Medical Corporation’s U.S. Patent No. 6,681,003 to Linder et. al.  The petition identifies Koninklijke Philips as a real party-in-interest.

The ‘003 patent is entitled “Data Collection and System Management for Patient-Word Medical Devices.”  The ‘003 patent relates to “a method and system of monitoring information received from a patient-word medical device.”

The petition seeks review of nine of the patent’s 35 issued claims.  Eight of these nine claims identified in the petition have been asserted by ZOLL Medical against Respironics in a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court of Delaware.  The amended complaint, filed on January 9, 2013, alleges that Respironics’s “patient medical monitoring and treatment systems and methods” including positive airway pressure devices, infringe the ‘003 patent.
