Diagnosis and treatment

 

ResMed is in the business of breathing.

We’re here to partner with you so that you can continue to give your patients the best possible care.

Learn more about ResMed’s treatment options for sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and respiratory insufficiency associated with other conditions.

If you’re having trouble breathing while you’re asleep or awake, you might have a more serious breathing condition that affects your lungs. Learn more about the mechanics of breathing, as well as some of the conditions that might be making it difficult for you to breathe on your own.
