ResMed launches myAir app
SAN DIEGO – iPhone users can now download ResMed’s myAir, a program for CPAP users to track their own sleep apnea treatment, from the Apple App Store. “We have seen increased rates of patient engagement and satisfaction by integrating myAir into their treatment plans,” said Raj Sodhi, ResMed president of Healthcare Informatics. “Now it’s even easier for patients to engage with their therapy thanks to the added convenience of an iPhone app.” Approximately 900 patients a day sign up for the web version of the program, which shows how long users slept on CPAP, how many apneas they had per hour and how well their CPAP mask fits. myAir also provides personalized tips for greater comfort and sleep, and awards badges when users reach milestones in their therapy.
