Research and education

Up to one in every five adults1 has sleep-disordered breathing (SDB).

An expanding body of scientific evidence clearly indicates that SDB has a profound negative impact on public health.

Through its strong partnership with the global medical community, ResMed is committed to:

  • Increasing awareness of the dangers of untreated SDB
  • Supporting ongoing research into the correlation of SDB with other health risks
  • Finding effective clinical solutions to improve the health and lives of SDB patients

At ResMed, we are focused on developing our industry and patient expertise in sleep and respiratory disorders. That’s why we continue to research areas related to sleep-disordered breathing.

Sleep apnoea and cardiovascular issues

Further explore research topics on cardiovascular disease and its connection to sleep apnoea and SDB.

Diabetes and sleep apnoea

Explore research about diabetes in relation to sleep and respiratory care.

Obesity and sleep apnoea

Obesity and sleep apnoea is highly prevalent in morbidly obese patients and is associated with increased risk of cardiac arrhythmias

Sleep-related traffic and occupational accidents

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) sufferers have a significantly increased risk of motor vehicle accidents.

Sleep-disordered breathing and positive airway pressure

Read more research on the topics of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and positive airway pressure (PAP).

Sleep therapy compliance

Read about research on compliance in relation to positive airway pressure therapy.

AutoSetTM technology

Changes in sleep stage, weight, body position, and other factors can alter a patient's airway pressure treatment requirements from night to night, hour to hour and breath to breath.

Screening for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA)

ResMed offers several solutions to screen and diagnose Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Discover the ways to screen OSA at home and in different care settings.

Non-Invasive Ventilation for paediatric patients

Children with inherited neuromuscular conditions have a high risk of respiratory disorders during early childhood or adolescence. Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV) is recommended to improve quality of life.

Non-Invasive Ventilation for COPD patients

Treatment of COPD with non-invasive ventilation (NIV) has been shown to be effective in treating acute exacerbations of COPD, assisting pulmonary rehabilitation in COPD patients, and providing benefits in managing chronic hypercapnic COPD patients.

Non-Invasive Ventilation for obesity hypoventilation syndrome

Non-invasive ventilation in patients with obesity hypoventilation syndrome has been shown to normalise blood gases, prolong survival and increase exercise capacity.

Non-Invasive Ventilation for neuromuscular diseases in adults

Many chronic neuromuscular disorders lead to progressive respiratory muscle dysfunction. Non-invasive ventilation can help reduce daytime sleepiness while facilitating gas exchange and breathing.

iVAPS algorithms

ResMed develops ventilators using the latest iVAPS technology that continuously adapts to patients for a more comfortable respiratory therapy experience.

Non-Invasive Ventilation for acute respiratory failure

Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is often used for patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, but emerging evidence suggests that NIV can be used in treating other types of acute respiratory failure.
