ResMed, a pioneer in the treatment of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), has been the industry's premier innovator, with award winning customer-centric products that have significantly improved patient acceptance and adherence to SDB therapy.

Ecosystem Approach Brings Increased Efficiency and Efficacy to SDB Treatment

"With Air Solutions, we're creating a new beginning in patient care," said Don Darkin, president of the ResMed Sleep-Disordered Breathing Business Unit. "As we unveil each Air Solutions component, our signature differentiation of superior performance and comfort will be underscored, made even stronger with groundbreaking technology that helps providers become more connected with their patients." 

Air Solutions comprises components that, together, create a comprehensive end-to-end ecosystem that directly addresses the pain points for each stakeholder in the patient's therapy, including physicians, sleep labs, home medical equipment providers, and the patients themselves. The ecosystem approach, Darkin says, can increase efficiency and treatment efficacy by keeping providers informed and patients engaged.  Included in the Air Solutions platform are:

ApneaLink™ Air: ResMed's compact and lightweight home sleep testing device works seamlessly with AirView software (see below) to empower sleep labs to efficiently manage each step of the diagnostic process, and share data to appropriate user groups.

AirSense™ 10 Series: ResMed's new series of continuous and automatic positive airway pressure devices (CPAP and APAP) called AirSense 10 that have advanced data and communications features to streamline the set-up, compliance management and compliance monitoring processes. This brand new device platform is also intuitive and easy-to-use, and offers a smaller bedside footprint.

AirCurve™ 10 Series: The AirCurve 10 series includes a range of bi-level devices that meet a variety of patient conditions and needs, such as patients who need extra pressure support, as well as an ASV device for patients with Cheyne-Stokes respiration or who require adaptive-servo-ventilation.

AirFit™ Masks: Announced earlier this year, the AirFit masks are known by their easy fit and superior comfort. The AirFit line includes the AirFit P10 nasal pillows system, which is the current market leader among new patients, the AirFit F10 full-face mask and the AirFit N10 nasal mask.

AirView™ Monitoring and Compliance Management System:  When used in conjunction with Air Solutions devices, the AirView software solution significantly streamlines the patient management process by providing troubleshooting, fault detection and more.  AirView enables data on demand, with patient data available in just one hour after a patient's therapy session has ended.

myAir Patient Engagement Application and Software: An engaged patient is more likely to be compliant, and myAir helps patients better understand their own sleep data, with data dashboards, coaching and reinforcement messages.

ApneaLink Air and AirFit masks are available now in the U.S. and other select markets.  The AirSense 10 and AirView will be available in the U.S. and Australia on Aug. 18, and other markets later this calendar year.  The AirCurve 10 Series and myAir will also be available later this calendar year.

WebRTC is doing for voice what HTML did for web content.
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations migh...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically.
