Every ResMed mask is designed to deliver effective therapy and a comfortable night’s sleep, but each category offers something a little different.
CPAP machine is a general term often used to describe various machines that treat sleep apnea. These machines deliver air through tubing and into a mask to keep your airway open while you sleep. This process is known as sleep therapy and is designed to help you get a restful night’s sleep.
ResMed is the leading provider of SaaS solutions across a broad spectrum of out-of-hospital care settings.
