Your patient might have difficulty breathing as a result of a greater medical condition—like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) or Neuromuscular Disease (NMD)—and may need the help of a ventilator to breathe. Learn more about ResMed’s range of therapy options for invasive and noninvasive ventilation to suit a broad range of patients and care settings.
Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) provides ventilatory support to patients who suffer from respiratory insufficiency.
NMD is a broad term that encompasses many diseases and ailments that impair the functioning of the muscles either directly via intrinsic muscle pathology, or indirectly via nerve pathology.

The first sign of a sleep disorder is snoring, even though many patients won’t identify that as a sign of something more serious. There are other common symptoms too.
There are three main types of sleep-disordered breathing which are manifested in sleep apnea. Discovering the specific differences between them can help you recognise how best to treat your patients.
Adherence to therapy can be the biggest challenge for patients with sleep apnea. Comfortable equipment, proper replacement, follow-up and education are critical to helping patients adapt to and stay on therapy.
It was Barry’s wife Margaret who spurred him into action to seek treatment from his doctor for what turned out to be sleep apnea.
Brian initially underwent exceptionally painful throat surgery to combat his sleep apnea — but it was not successful. He is now on positive airway pressure therapy, and uses an S9 device. Brian is a very energetic and dynamic personality with plenty of get up and go. As a successful businessman, he travels overseas regularly for work and leads a full and active life.
