LIn fact, readers who can read this article already have a certain understanding of ventilators. Or a friend, or a doctor, the body has forced you or your family to buy. I just don’t know how to buy it, let alone how to choose a brand.
Most of the ones recommended by doctors can’t be found online, and the prices are still high. I can see it online, and the price is so low that I dare not buy it. It is difficult for Du Niang and others to see conscientious recommendations other than advertisements. Originally, when the family members got sick, they were already exhausted from work, but when they were discharged from the hospital, they still had to be so entangled…
I have been in this industry for several years. Today I will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of various brands of ventilators. I hope that you can find the most suitable brand for you and your condition based on your actual situation.
It is estimated that it will take 10 minutes to read this article carefully. If the time is really tight, just read the analysis part directly.
If you say that the ventilator is the best, it is Australia’s ResMed that bears the brunt. In 1980, Professor Sullivan invented the ventilator, which opened the way to benefit patients. It has branches in 18 countries including the United States, Japan, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, New Zealand, Sweden, and Singapore, and has agencies and after-sales service agencies in more than 65 countries and regions around the world.
ResMed brings together global sleep medical authorities as members of the medical advisory group to ensure that products have passed rigorous clinical tests, and continue to develop and develop new technologies and products. After years of research and development, ResMed now has more than 400 technical patents and more than 100 design patents, and strives to help every patient improve sleep quality and regain a high-quality new life. (The above is the official introduction)
Advantages: It is a globally recognized machine with very good performance and algorithms. Performance, man-machine synchronicity, simply put, you can breathe more smoothly. Algorithm, more precise pressure control, while opening the airway, does not affect sleep comfort. The development time of ventilator technology is also the longest, and the biggest core technology is its algorithm.
Anyone who has taken a ResMed machine knows that the comfort is very good, and the appearance and fine workmanship of the machine are also leading in the industry. Especially for its mask, there are more than a thousand patented technologies for a single mask, such as aerodynamic technology, which can very well reduce the airflow noise from the mask. And it is worth mentioning that ResMed’s main business has not changed, focusing on ventilators.
Disadvantages: ResMed’s biggest flaw is that it is not good at marketing. However, with the rise of China’s Internet these years, ResMed’s popularity is getting higher and higher.
In terms of price: since such a good machine, the price must be very expensive. In fact, its price is quite satisfactory, and it has always been in the mid-range price of imported brands. Even if you are not too picky, the price of some models is almost the same as that of domestic machines, you will know.
Price range: sleep machine: 1971￥ to800￥, lung disease machine: 2685$ to 2142$.
Philips has the nickname “Bulb Factory”. In 1891, Antonio and Gerard Philips founded Philips in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. One of the largest producers of carbon filament light bulbs. From January 1, 2008, the company streamlined its organizational structure and established three business divisions: Healthcare, Lighting and Quality Living.
It can be seen from this point that Philips still regards medical care as one of its main businesses, but the proportion of home health care in the company’s internal profits is still relatively low. Philips focuses on marketing, and the machine has not been updated for a long time. What is the reason… I want everyone to guess, so I won’t go into details.
Pros: Philips V60 is a very powerful medical grade mechanical ventilator, through which clinicians have gained wide acceptance. Combined with the popularity of the Philips brand in the minds of the general public, this machine is easy to push. The performance of the home machine is also very strong, it is worth paying attention to is the dream series sleep machine, can connect APP through the cloud platform, real-time attention to the use of the machine. It’s a ride on the Internet…
Cons: Poor market control. You can see the online price and physical store price chaos, in the end who is gray market, who is refurbished goods, who is real, who is fake, feel like the real Monkey King, we need to have the same wisdom as the Buddha.
Price: It’s hard to say, but logically it should be more expensive than Risesmile.
Price range: 400$ to 2800$ .
In 1980, Wanman found a new direction in the United States. With Homecare, a patient-focused sleep medicine and home medical care device, we have opened up a whole new market segment. Since then, Manman has become the first German manufacturer of a positive pressure ventilator (CPAP) for sleep disorders. The new generation of products, operated by built-in microprocessors, is still a pillar of the company’s continued healthy growth.
Advantages: Made in Germany represents some aspects of the most extreme quality! So as you can imagine, as the first German manufacturer of CPAP, its quality is absolutely unquestionable.
Of course, its core selling point is the all-copper turbine and three-level, all-copper motor running at high speed, full power, and copper electrode life is really good. Of course the Germans are still “stubborn”. I don’t think this machine will last long… (It takes 100 years to use a pot and a knife.)
Disadvantages: Of course, it also has its drawbacks. You can find that there is very little information and quotation about Man-Man ventilator in retail stores or online. You can guess from this: yes, it only does clinical work, which makes the price opaque.
Despite its marketing, its products did follow the German obsession and were clunky. This is especially sleep patients, if you have to travel too tangled? Are we gonna carry it or not? No? Bad back sleep! And back shoulder pain ah…
Price: We can guess from the quality and clinical two clues, its price is also the industry leader, really not cheap.
Price range: sleep machine: 1500$ ~ 2800$, lung machine: 2800$ ~ 4000$.
As an aside: In August 1887, the British Parliament passed an insulting clause in the Trade Mark Act, which required all goods imported from Germany to be marked “Made in Germany” as a way of distinguishing cheap, bad German goods from good British goods. Today, 131 years later, “Made in Germany” is no longer a label of fake and inferior copies, but a synonym for high-quality products with brands such as Siemens, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Bayer, Henkel and Adidas. This history is a perfect illustration of knowing shame and then being brave, which is worth learning from for Chinese people.
Not if it’s lung disease. Fisher only made a single level machine, the snoring machine.
Domestic website almost no information about it, it seems that everyone for the network promotion and marketing of this piece is not in place, is confirmed. But in foreign websites, this product can also be said to be a lot of praise.
Advantages: Fisher & Paykel New Zealand national treasure products, its core competitiveness has two:
One is the powerful humidification function, for patients in dry climate areas and patients with high comfort requirements, this is a great blessing, standard heating pipeline, other manufacturers need to add 1000 yuan heating pipeline.
The second is the awakening sensor technology. In the late night, when you are about to wake up due to excessive pressure from the machine, the machine sensor will automatically detect and release the pressure so that you can continue to sleep peacefully. Moreover, this process is very fast and almost imperceptible.
Cons: It looks a bit like a kettle, and the designer felt it came from a humidifier idea. There’s a clasp on the door, more like a kettle when you lift it. Human-machine friendliness is not very good, AHI view is complex. Old people have a hard time learning about machines… I had to make fun of that!

Origin in Suzhou, Germany wholly owned company. Sales: Very interesting, only clinical line. (Sales get through the doctor (or director) to introduce the patient)
The biggest cost of the clinical line is PR, but its price is more like that of a domestic machine. Maybe it’s made in China? Anyway, I personally don’t like this form of PR, so I don’t like to comment too much.
Price: As a “German brand”, with such high public relations costs, the price is only about the same as Rissmer? There’s got to be a cost squeeze somewhere.
Price range: lung disease about 2800$
06. Other brands
Debix (United States), Boyalya, Agbo (Taiwan) these are niche brands, the market is rarely seen without too much evaluation, the machine has not tried even worse evaluation.
