Patient adherence and replenishment

Patient adherence to therapy can be the biggest challenge when treating sleep apnea. Research indicates that patients and their families are more likely to adapt to and continue with therapy if they have proper equipment and training, an adequate number of caregivers, and a support system of experienced healthcare professionals.1-4

Improve patient compliance by using a multi-faceted approach

At ResMed, we agree that the best way to improve patient compliance is by using a multi-faceted approach, which includes:


Comfortable, easy-to-use and reliable equipment

ResMed’s therapy devicesmasks and humidification technology cover a wide range of patient needs, providing every opportunity for successful therapy.


Effective patient education and consistent follow-up

This is vital to help maintain a patient’s confidence in the therapy they are receiving.

  • AirView compliance monitoring allows across the board, real-time access to patient data for all care partners (HCPs, physicians, sleep labs, hospitals) in one place.
  • myAir allows patients to track their nightly sleep data and receive interactive coaching.

These and other ResMed connected health solutions are an easy and efficient way to proactively identify and address therapy adherence issues.


Equipment replacement and compliance

Timely equipment replacement is critical in helping patients stay compliant and comfortable during therapy.

Take the time to teach your patients when and how to replace components of their products, and how this relates to comfort and therapy effectiveness.
