ResMed is an Australian company that was founded by Peter C. Farrell in 1989. Its main mission was to design, develop and manufacture an affordable and effective device for the management and treatment of sleep-disordered breathing. It was Farrell’s vision to make available an affordable CPAP machine for public consumption. The company has now manufacturing plants in the United States, France and Singapore, employing more than 4,000 people and operating in more than 100 countries.
RedMed cemented a partnership with Johnson & Johnson’s LifeScan in 2009. The merger helped bring about greater awareness of obstructive sleep apnoea with patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
