Open Day at the London Centre of Healthy Sleep

On September 18th we welcomed our patients to come and visit us at our Centre for Healthy Sleep on Wimpole Street in London. We hosted two sessions - one in the morning and another in the afternoon. Both sessions were fully booked so the clinic was busier than ever before.

We had our clinicians Ruth, Glynis and Verity at hand to discuss sleep-disordered breathing in particular obstructive sleep apnoea and how to cope with CPAP treatment. We did CPAP mask fitting workshops and celebrated the launch of our two exciting new masks - the Swift FX Nano nasal mask and Quattro Air full face mask.

We also discussed the treatment data that your CPAP and APAP devices collect and how understanding the data might help you with your therapy. John from our technical services department was very busy talking about technical tips and answering your questions about the devices.

Sarah from our Patient Services Team showed the ins and outs of how to look after your CPAP equipment and how to keep your masks in tip-top shape for the most comfortable and effective therapy.

 

Our patient story corner was hosted by Phillip who was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnoea two years ago. Soon after his start on treatment he agreed to talk about his experience on a video which we published on our website. In the film he talks very openly about the struggles he had before he was diagnosed with OSA and what a difference it made to his quality of life when he was put on CPAP treatment after suffering from the symptoms of OSA for many years.

Today he looks amazing, he has lost weight, his blood pressure has normalized and he is a healthy young man full of energy and fun. It was very generous of Phil to volunteer his time to come and share his experiences with all of us. We think he’s quite an inspiration!

Many of you who visited us on the day filled in a feedback form which will help us in planning our next event. Thank you for taking the time to fill it in. Much of the feedback was very positive and it makes us really happy that you found the day interesting and useful. Some of your favourites were the Technical Tips for CPAP devices and the Mask Fitting Workshops. Most of you said you would like to visit us again!

Many thanks from the ResMed team to all of you who came on the day. For the ones who couldn’t make it this time - there will be more events to come. We will keep you posted!

It was great to see you all. Stay in touch!
