ResMed adds exec in South Asia to increase awareness

Friday, May 31, 2019

SAN DIEGO – ResMed has appointed Shubhi Khurana as general manager for India and South Asia to create market development and awareness initiatives to educate the public, medical community and decision-makers about the prevalence of sleep and respiratory diseases in the region, as well as how to diagnose and treat them at home with cloud-connectable non-invasive devices. “Sleep apnea and COPD are global health epidemics and are especially prevalent in Asia,” said Justin Leong, president of ResMed Asia Growth Markets. “In India, these diseases are highly underdiagnosed due to low awareness amongst both doctors and the general community. Given the link between these diseases and other chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, stroke, cognitive disorders and cancer, it is critical we continue to educate and treat people with these conditions.” More broadly, Khurana will oversee business operations, including setting strategic priorities, and evolving the team and go-to-market models for the company’s long-term growth. She has more than two decades in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and medtech industries.
