San Diego medical devices maker ResMed (NYSE:RMD) announced this week that it's going to "take action" to protect its respiratory patents, most recently by filing an infringement lawsuit against APEX Medical.

ResMed filed parallel actions with the the International Trade Commission and in U.S federal courts, alleging that a handful of APEX's products violate patents for respiratory devices and masks.

The news comes just weeks after ResMed changed hands from founder and former CEO Dr. Peter Farrell to his son Michael "Mick" Farrell, a transition that took effect at the start of March.
