ResMed, Inc. has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan as the recipient of the 2005 Product Quality Leadership of the Year Award in the Sleep Therapy Market for developing the S7 Elite CPAP system, designed for patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
Company highlights some of the features of the system:
ResMed’s S7 Elite CPAP combines integrated humidification, data for both patients and clinicians, and a number of other features that produce optimal comfort, convenience, and patient involvement in CPAP therapy.
Features & Benefits
— Optional HumidAire 2i integrated heated humidifier provides a highly effective and highly affordable upgrade path for patients who require heated humidification.
— HumidAire 2i humidifier has a warm-up feature for patients who want full humidification the moment they start therapy.
— All electronic components are isolated from the water chamber to ensure safety.
— Data for clinicians, including trends in pressure, leak, AHI, AI, and HI, are available through the LCD interface, so downloading data to AutoScan™ software is not necessary for a snapshot of patient therapy.
