The benefits of treatment

Studies have shown that noninvasive ventilation (NIV) can improve the symptoms associated with respiratory failure for patients with neuromuscular disease and lead to:

  • Improved swallowing
  • An easier time breathing
  • Less feelings of fatigue and sleepiness
  • Fewer morning headaches
  • Better concentration
  • Improvement in mood

NIV can help improve your quality of life, so that you can still get out and about with your ventilator and enjoy life as much as possible.

More NMD

What is NMD?
Neuromuscular disease (NMD) is the name given to a range of diseases and conditions that affect your muscles.
Treatment options for neuromuscular disease
ResMed has developed therapy devices and ventilators designed to help you feel better during the day and sleep better at night, so you can get the most out of life.
Why is treatment important?
Because NMD affects your muscles, you may not have the muscle strength to breathe on your own. It's important that you start treatment with a ventilator that your physician has indicated is suitable for you.
