ResMed has developed the new AirMini continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine for patients with sleep apnoea.

Designed to provide ease while travelling, the portable, pocket-sized device weighs 300g and measures 13.6cm x 8.4cm x 5.2cm.

AirMini features the firm's CPAP technology, AutoSet functions and the new built-in HumidX humidification system, which captures exhaled heat and moisture in the mask tube and redelivers it to the patient.

ResMed chief executive officer Mick Farrell said: “The ResMed AirMini has redefined CPAP therapy, providing patients with peace of mind, knowing that they can easily get ResMed-quality therapy wherever they are.

“CPAP is now more portable and accessible than ever before.

AirMini comes with a phone app that allows patients to change settings and track nightly usage data.

The device is compatible with the firm's AirFit N20 nasal and F20 full face masks, and is also available as a AirMini version of the AirFit P10 nasal pillows mask.

From 3 May, ResMed is set to take pre-orders for the new CPAP device from US home medical equipment (HME) providers and will start shipping by the end of the month.

The device will initially be available in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, New Zealand, Spain and the UK.
