Respiratory care therapies

The goal of mechanical ventilation is to support patients suffering from respiratory failure.1 Ventilation improves the exchange of gases and reduces the patient's work of breathing.2

ResMed offers a broad range of ventilation options for invasive and noninvasive applications to suit different patients and care settings.

Our total suite of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) solutions includes therapy devices complemented by masks that incorporate the latest comfort and performance technologies, patient management software, accessories, training and service.

High flow oxygen therapy

High flow oxygen therapy

High flow oxygen therapy is used in acute respiratory failure as well as chronic respiratory failure.

Invasive ventilation (IV)

Invasive ventilation (IV) following endotracheal intubation provides ventilatory support for your patients. Learn how IV can become a lifesaving intervention for your patients with respiratory failure.

Noninvasive ventilation (NIV)

Noninvasive ventilation (NIV)

Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) provides ventilatory support to patients who suffer from respiratory insufficiency.
