ResMed’s hits market with travel CPAP

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

SAN DIEGO – ResMed unveiled its travel CPAP, the AirMini, today, April 25. Weighing just 0.66 pounds and measuring just 5.4 x 3.3 x 2 inches, the company is hailing the device as “the world’s smallest CPAP machine.” “CPAP is now more portable and accessible than ever before,” said Mick Farrell, CEO, in a press release. “I have been traveling all over the world with a prototype of the AirMini system, using AutoSet, humidification, and an AirFit P10 pillows mask, and it has changed my travel life. I am so excited to see that this technology is now available to many millions of sleep apnea patients.” In a recent survey, 65% of CPAP users said the size of their devices is the No. 1 reason why they don’t take their CPAP machines every time they travel, breaking the cycle of adherence, according to the release. Users of the AirMini can change their comfort settings and track their usage data through an accompanying phone app. ResMed is making the AirMini, which also features portable waterless humidification, available through HME providers. It will begin taking pre-orders on May 3, and the device will begin shipping by May 31. ResMed first announced plans to launch the AirMini during a conference call in January.
