Therapy management

The right start

Studies confirm that remote monitoring and clinical support may have a direct influence on compliance.1-4   So ResMed has included remote management in all AirSense™ 10 and AirCurve™ 10 patient devices.

The ResScan™ patient management system gives you access to the patient’s therapy information via an SD card already loaded into the device to give you advanced insights into their therapy.

It enables you to help patients who need additional support in getting used to therapy, and to address any issues early.

This may reduce patient drop-outs and accelerate the adoption of therapy.

More efficient care

As well as reviewing and analysing therapy data, you can also use ResScan to update settings remotely and transfer them to the device.

Thanks to ResScan you can also reduce unnecessary device returns and visits to the patient’s home – a valuable time-saving for you.

For a fully integrated approach to patient care, prescribe ResMed Air Solutions products.
