Of these devices, 14 are in active development, while the remaining 14 are in an inactive stage of development. There are four products in the early stages of development, and the remaining ten are in the late stages of development.

Positive airway pressure is a method of respiratory ventilation used primarily in the treatment of sleep apnea. PAP ventilation can also be used during the “weaning off” period of a ventilated intensive care patient, in exacerbations of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), pulmonary edema and other settings of respiratory failure. PAP machines keep pressured air flowing through the airways of the throat. The patient wears a face mask which is attached to a tube and a machine that blows the pressurized air through mask into the airway and this air acts like a balloon keeping the windpipe open during sleep. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) devices, Bi-level Positive Airway Pressure (BPAP) devices, Automatic self-adjusting Positive Airway Pressure (APAP) devices are covered under this. One unit refers to One positive airway pressure device.

Innovations in the medical devices sector are linked to the development of new approaches, processes, or technologies for treating, diagnosing, and managing disease in response to demand from healthcare for better patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.

Based on an analysis of GlobalData’s Medical Intelligence Center pipeline product database, these actively developed Positive Airway Pressure Devices pipeline devices are all expected to be approved within the next ten years.

Currently, private organizations, public entities and institutions are working on the development of Positive Airway Pressure Devices devices. Overall, most of these Positive Airway Pressure Devices pipeline devices are being developed by private entities.

Key players involved in the active development of Positive Airway Pressure Devices include Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, RespiNova, Rhinomed, Sleep Secure, Tel Aviv University, Universitas Padjadjaran, Vincent Medical, Airing, Beijing Dehaier Medical Technology and Bhabha Atomic Research Centre.
