Putting the Snooze back into Sleep

person in a bed sleepingResMed designs and manufactures world-leading continuous positive airway pressure devices used in treating sleep apnoea and, as a company focussed on innovation, is continually working on improvements to their products and processes.

As part of that work, ResMed needs to be confident that they are accurately measuring the humidification produced by their devices in accordance with international standards.

From 2004–08 ResMed turned to NMI for assistance in this area, recognising NMI’s expertise in providing trusted measurement at extremely high levels of accuracy.

NMI developed unique apparatus to measure both the air flow and humidity levels associated with use of the ResMed devices very accurately. This enabled ResMed to calibrate their own equipment and provided operational data that ResMed could use to enhance the design and manufacture of their product.
