The clinical study of 50 patients suffering from sleep apnoea showed an improvement of 30 minutes in average daily usage, from a mean of 6 hours 35 minutes on the patient's usual CPAP device, to 7 hours 5 minutes, when using the new S9 Series.

Sleep apnoea is one of the more common, and yet highly undiagnosed, sleep disorders. Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep apnoea and is marked by the collapse or obstruction of the airway during sleep. The most effective treatment is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy. In this non-invasive treatment, air is pressurised by a small device and delivered to the airway of the patient through a mask that fits on/over the nose, or nose and mouth. The pressurised air keeps the upper airway open and helps the person to get a restful night without interruptions caused by apnoeas.

A patient's ability to comply with sleep therapy, however, is affected by potential negative side effects, such as noise from the device, nasal dryness/congestion and breathing discomfort. To combat these side effects and increase patients' ability to adhere to the sleep therapy, ResMed has developed new improved features for its S9 Series including reduced noise, improved humidification system, and a more comfortable
