Neuromuscular disease (NMD) is the name given to a range of diseases and conditions that affect the nerves controlling your muscles or weakening of the muscles themselves. If the nerves can't communicate with your muscles, then your muscles can't function properly.
Because NMD affects your muscles, you may not have the muscle strength to breathe on your own. It's important that you start treatment with a ventilator that your physician has indicated is suitable for you.
ResMed has developed therapy devices and ventilators designed to help you feel better during the day and sleep better at night, so you can get the most out of life.
Studies have shown that noninvasive ventilation (NIV) can improve the symptoms associated with respiratory failure for NMD patients.
Finding the right equipment supplier can make all the difference to your therapy.
Thanks to their universal power supply, most ResMed devices can be used all over the world and even on an aeroplane.
