Sedana Medical AB (publ) starts its own sales operations in Norway and Denmark.
Sedana Medical AB (“Sedana Medical” or “the Company”) is recruiting Norwegian and Danish Sales Manager and is thus established in Norway and Denmark with its own direct sales business from March 1st, 2018.
Alongside the ongoing clinical study being conducted in Germany and ahead of planned marketing authorisation for the medicinal product IsoConDa® (isoflurane) in Europe, Sedana Medical is building up an international sales organisation of its own in its principal markets, supplemented by external distributors in other markets.
Sedana Medical several years ago established a presence with its own sales organisation in Germany, where its medical device AnaConDa is now sold. AnaConDa is a patented medical device with a unique technology making it possible to sedate patients with volatile anaesthetics, IsoConDa, in intensive care units, so called inhalation sedation. A separate direct sales organisation was also set up some time ago in France and Spain. During the last months in 2017, the Company opened the door to its own direct sales of AnaConDa in Sweden as well and prepare for the launch of the future pharmaceutical IsoConDa.
“We are proud that we are taking this step in our development. The Nordic Region, which is our domestic market, is important to us. This is entirely in line with our strategy of independently developing inhalation sedation therapy in intensive care and expansion of our own sales organisation in several European countries. We are consequently taking a major step towards realising our vision of making inhalation sedation with IsoConDa and AnaConDa a global standard of care treatment for the sedation of mechanically ventilated patients in intensive care,” says Christer Ahlberg, CEO of Sedana Medical AB (publ).
