Respiratory care therapies

The goal of ventilation is to support patients suffering from sleep-disordered breathing, respiratory insufficiency or respiratory failure.1 Ventilation improves the exchange of gases and reduces the patient's work of breathing.2

ResMed offers a broad range of ventilation options for invasive and non-invasive (NIV) applications to suit different patients and care settings.

Our total suite of non-invasive ventilation and invasive ventilation solutions include therapy devices complemented by masks that incorporate the latest comfort and performance technologies, patient management software, accessories, training and service.
