Cardiology research at ResMed
ResMed is a global pioneer and leader in respiratory care. With our programme to research clinical areas related to sleep-disordered breathing, we aim to further develop our in-depth knowledge on sleep and respiratory disorders. That’s why we support and actively engage in research initiatives related to cardiology.
Explore our research initiatives for cardiology below.
SCHLA-HF is a major multi-centre screening registry exploring the prevalence and prediction of sleep-disordered breathing and heart failure. It is the largest database of its kind, with 10,000 patients enrolled in 213 cardiology centres.
CAT HF is a multi-centre, randomised and controlled trial aiming to assess the effects of ASV in patients after a hospitalisation for acute decompensated heart failure. It began in multiple US sites in September 2013. Results are expected in 2016.
The FACE study is a French prospective, multicentre, observational cohort that will provide long-term data on morbidity and mortality of heart failure patients using ASV. So far over 270 patients have been enrolled by 30 centres, with a target of 300 chronic HF patients at the end of December 2014.
