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.
Snoring can have a disruptive effect on your patients’ lives. They’re often not the first to realise they have a problem: rather, it’s their bed partner who complains.
ResMed has treatment options for throat snorers who have sleep apnoea, as well as for throat snorers who don’t.
ResMed gives you easy access to the tools you need, to screen your patients for sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), request a sleep study, and get them diagnosed. Learn more about the different types of sleep apnea; suggested links to other significant health conditions (like type 2 diabetes); and ResMed’s range of treatment options.
ResMed explains the differences between three types of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB): Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), Central Sleep Apnoea (CSA) and mixed or complex sleep apnoea.
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.
When left untreated, patients with SDB like OSA and CSA have an increased risk of developing serious chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes. A significant number of patients with COPD also have SDB.
ResMed helps you to guide your patient to the best and appropriate OSA treatment options available. These include CPAP, PAP, APAP, bilevel therapy and oral appliance therapy.
Adherence to therapy can be the biggest challenge for patients with sleep apnoea. Comfortable equipment, proper replacement, follow-up and education are critical to helping patients adapt to and stay on therapy.
Featuring wireless connectivity, ResMed’s sleep and respiratory care devices transmit patient therapy data to AirView, for remote monitoring and customised settings.
Your patient might have difficulty breathing (with or without sleep apnoea) 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.

It’s reassuring to know that if you’ve been diagnosed with a sleep or breathing condition, you’re certainly not alone. You’ll be encouraged to hear what these patients had to say about their treatment journeys—from diagnosis to treatment and beyond
"I have so much more energy when I’m teaching late classes or when I’m working out. CPAP has changed my life."
"I can’t believe how much more energy I have during the day. My blood pressure has normalised. I enjoy playing with my kids so much more now."
"Remember, sleep plays a vital role in health—and in illness. If you are struggling getting used to your PAP system, get help from someone who has been there and done that. It can make a tremendous difference!"
"The first time I used CPAP, I woke up headache free. Soon, I didn’t have to sleep the minute I came home. It was great."
