Respiratory care



At ResMed, we provide a number of solutions to treat respiratory disorders.

Both Invasive (IV) and Non-Invasive ventilation (NIV) has often been used to treat patients with respiratory dysfunction. Some benefits of ventilation include improved blood gases, reduced work of breathing, improved quality of life as wells as and relief in symptoms such as fatigue, daytime sleepiness and morning headaches.

Find out how ventilation and ResMed treatment can benefit specific patients below.

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 (NIV) 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.

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.

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 is recommended to improve quality of life.

iVAPS algorithms

At ResMed, we’re focused providing comfortable, effective therapy. That’s why we developed our iVAPs algorithm innovative technology that adapts to the changing needs of patients, for example those with neuromuscular disease and obesity hypoventilation.
