Approximately one in every five adults1have 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.
Read a selection of recently published clinical articles about a range of topics.
