Patients and Families > About Us
ResMed is a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of medical equipment for treating, diagnosing, and managing sleep-disordered breathing and other respiratory disorders.
We are dedicated to developing innovative products to improve the lives of those who suffer from these conditions, and to increase awareness among patients and care providers of the potentially serious health consequences of untreated sleep-disordered breathing.
Changing lives with every breath
At ResMed we believe that every breath is an opportunity to make a positive change to people’s lives. We’ve been helping to change lives since 1989 and now we’re unveiling a new brand that we believe embodies this philosophy. Have a look and see if you agree.
Our mission is to provide global leadership in sleep medicine and non-invasive ventilation based on innovative technology to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and management of sleep-disordered breathing.
The ResMed story
When ResMed was formed in 1989, our primary purpose was to commercialize a device for treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a major subset of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB).
