ResMed, one of the dominant players in the sleep-disorder market, has signed a definitive deal to buy Minnesota-based MatrixCare to augment its expanding software-as-a-service business with MatrixCare's electronic health record platform for long-term care settings.
With half or more of all diagnosed obstructive sleep apnea patients who need continuous positive airway pressure machines unwilling or unable to use these devices, there’s a large unmet need for an alternative treatment. Startups are rising to the challenge with neuromodulation platforms, a mouthguard-like suction device, a nasal device with microblowers, and a vibrating device that nudges patients to turn on their sides.
Medtronic is moving quickly to increase its market share in airway management and respiratory monitoring and is expanding its product portfolio to help hospitals reduce the incidence of respiratory compromise and preventable adverse events. The company recently acquired Aircraft Medical and its video laryngoscopy business, launched its own laryngeal mask product and identified a wide range of potential applications for its fast-growing capnography product line.
Results from the SERVE-HF trial, presented at the recent European Society of Cardiology meeting and published in the NEJM, showed systolic heart failure patients with central sleep apnea treated with adaptive servo-ventilation actually had worse mortality outcomes than the control group. These results "shocked " both the respiratory and cardiology community and spell gloom for ResMed's sleep apnea therapy.
