On April 11th, ResMed announced the release of its long anticipated S9 VPAP machines. Following the success of the innovative S9 CPAP series release, the VPAP series includes four new bilevel treatment devices that have improvements in size, technology, and features over the previous S8 VPAP series.
Included in this release are the S9 VPAP S, the S9 VPAP Auto, the S9 VPAP Adapt, and the S9 VPAP ST. Below is information from ResMed about the new machines:
"'We are proud to announce the launch of the bilevel range of products on the S9™ platform, our latest and most innovative flow generator system for treating respiratory disorders including sleep-disordered breathing. Now, for the first time in our history, health care providers have one platform that can treat obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea and Cheyne–Stokes respiration, as well as provide noninvasive ventilation for patients requiring ventilatory support," said Michael Farrell, Sr. Vice President of the Global Sleep Business Unit at ResMed. "Our goal is to increase patients' quality of life by providing comfortable, quiet, easy-to-use and highly effective treatment. A critical element of successful treatment is long-term adherence to therapy. Since its launch just over a year ago, the S9 Series has been able to help physicians and respiratory therapists achieve that goal—driving therapeutic compliance by patients around the globe.'"
