Patient adherence to therapy can be the biggest challenge for treating sleep apnoea.
Research indicates that patients and their families are more likely to adapt to and continue therapy if they have:
- proper equipment and training1-4
- adequate number of caregivers1-4
- a support system of experienced healthcare professionals.1-4
At ResMed, we agree that the best way to improve patient compliance is by using a multi-faceted approach, which includes:
Comfortable, easy-to-use and reliable equipment
Effective patient education and consistent follow-up
This is vital to help maintain a patient's confidence in the therapy they are receiving. AirView compliance monitoring allows across the board, real-time access to patient data for all care partners (HMEs, physicians, sleep labs) in one place-an easy and efficient way for all to proactively identify and address therapy adherence issues.
Equipment replacement and compliance
Timely equipment replacement is critical in helping patients stay compliant and comfortable during therapy.
Take the time to educate your patients on knowing when and how to replace components of their products, and how this relates to comfort and therapy effectiveness.
