ResMed – Why Work For Us?

In 1989, Peter Farrell founded ResMed to treat obstructive sleep apnea in innovative new ways. In one day, that single idea would change the lives of millions of people around the world. Today, we’re a team of more than 6,000 employees, thinking, creating and challenging ourselves to better serve our patients – every day.

To this day, we continue to be energized by Peter and his entrepreneurial spirit as we move forward toward the future. His foundation of innovation continues to inspire and empower us as we:

  • Advance education, awareness and screening around sleep apnea and respiratory conditions
  • Create better diagnosis and therapy solutions for patients
  • Enhance respiratory care and management for healthcare professionals

At ResMed, every team member at every level of the organization can do extraordinary work and deliver innovation. It’s through this confidence in our people that we’ve developed and delivered a broad range of innovative products and solutions.

Headquartered in San Diego, CA, we have research and development, manufacturing, sales and support offices in more than 120 countries across the globe, including Brazil, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Japan, Portugal, South Africa, Australia and the United Kingdom. Join us, and you become part of the team that’s led the medical device industry for more than 30 years, with more than 5,000 patents issued and pending, and more than $2 billion in FY2017 revenue.

In 1981, Professor Colin Sullivan of the University of Sydney created the first continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. Built from a reverse vacuum cleaner pump, the device was the first noninvasive treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. While many saw its potential, only Dr. Peter Farrell recognized a commercial opportunity. In 1989, he founded ResMed to advance the treatment of sleep apnea, and in 1995, we began trading on NASDAQ. In 1999, we transferred our principal public listing to the NYSE. In late 1999, we established a secondary listing of our common stock on the Australian Stock Exchange.

Today, the prevalence of sleep apnea, COPD and other respiratory conditions is on the rise – and so too are the devices and software solutions ResMed has created to effectively treat and manage those conditions, including:

  • AirTouch F20, a full face CPAP mask with a revolutionary memory foam cushion
  • AirMini, the world’s smallest CPAP machine, ideal for travelers
  • Air10 bedside CPAP machines with built-in cloud connectivity for next-day data viewing by patients and clinicians
  • AirView, the world’s largest remote patient monitoring network, with more than 6 million patients registered
  • myAir, a web and iPhone app that lets patients view their own therapy usage data; 1,300 new users sign up daily

ResMed generated $2.1 billion in revenue in FY 2017, and in July was named to the S&P 500, Standard & Poor’s list of America’s 500 largest companies.  Our success is a testament to the hard work and focused dedication of our 6,000 employees worldwide to improve patients’ quality of life, reduce the impact of chronic disease and save healthcare costs in more than 120 countries.

Changing lives with every breath

At ResMed, we believe that every breath is a gift. And from the day we began pioneering sleep apnea treatment in 1989, our purpose has been to spread awareness and deliver life-changing products and solutions to patients suffering from sleep-disordered breathing and other respiratory conditions.

Twenty-five years later, we’re unveiling a new brand that reinforces our stance as an industry leader and, more importantly, our commitment to improving lives. To reflect our updated brand, we’ve refreshed our company website for the US and updated our logo.

The blue-to-red pulse curve not only symbolizes the transition from deoxygenated to oxygenated blood with every breath and beat of the heart, but it represents the very reason we are here today as an organization; to make every breath another chance for positive change.


In 1981 Professor Colin Sullivan and colleagues at the University of Sydney described and developed nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), the first successful, noninvasive treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

After publication of the initial successful results in Lancet, Sullivan, who had patented the technology, attempted to find a compatible partner to help commercialize the sleep technology. In 1986, Chris Lynch, who was then working with Dr. Peter Farrell, who was Managing Director of the Baxter Centre for Medical Research and also Vice President of R&D for Baxter Healthcare, Japan, met with Sullivan and recommended that Peter also meet with him to hear his story. The result was that in 1987 Farrell, on behalf of Baxter, invested in Sullivan’s technology to further evolve the prototype and subsequently undertake clinical trials of the CPAP device on a group of patients with severe sleep apnea.

In 1988, for a variety of reasons, Baxter decided not to enter the sleep apnea market and in 1989, Dr. Farrell founded ResMed in order to affect a management buyout of the Sullivan sleep technology from Baxter. After the MBO was completed ResMed proceeded to commercialize Sullivan’s prototype CPAP device to allow scalable device production and, therefore, effectively treat a critical mass of patients with sleep apnea.

Revenues for the first fiscal year in 1990 were less than $1 million, and there were only nine employees. As of January 2018, ResMed employs more than 6,000 people globally, operates in more than 120 countries, generated $2.3 billion in revenue during FY2018, and has a current market capitalization on the New York Stock Exchange above $10 billion.

Our Vision is to be the global solutions leader for sleep apnea, COPD and other chronic respiratory diseases. Our Mission is to improve the quality of life for patients, prevent chronic disease progression, and reduce overall healthcare system costs.

Our cloud-connected medical devices transform care for people with sleep apnea, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other chronic diseases.

We are committed to advancing innovative technology in all these areas across the 120+ countries we serve and, in reaching our goals, act ethically at all times in dealing with both customers and employees.

    I have been working at ResMed full-time (More than 3 years)


    Passionate and bold leadership, strong commitment to leveraging technology to improve outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.


    It’s hard to tame so many aspirations at once, and resulting course corrections can be painful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing: It isn’t always going to be perfect or pretty, but that’s not what’s important. As long as the patient continues to remain front and center, the rest will fall into place.
