Research and education

Approximately one in every five adults1have sleep-disordered breathing (SDB).

An expanding body of scientific evidence clearly indicates that SDB has a profound negative impact on public health.

Through its strong partnership with the global medical community, ResMed is committed to:

  • increasing awareness of the dangers of untreated SDB
  • supporting ongoing research into the correlation of SDB with other health risks
  • finding effective clinical solutions to improve the health and lives of SDB patients.
