We incorporate by reference the following documents we have filed, or may file, with the Commission:
|(a)||The description of the Common Stock contained in the Companys Registration Statement on Form 8-A filed with the Commission on September 21, 1999 (File No. 000-26038), including any subsequently filed amendments and reports updating that description; and|

All those documents will be considered a part of this registration statement from the respective dates we file them. A Current Report on Form 8-K furnished to the Commission will not be incorporated by reference into this registration statement. Any statement in a document incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference in this registration statement will be deemed to be modified or superseded to the extent that a statement contained in this registration statement or in any other later filed document that also is or is deemed to be incorporated by reference modifies or supersedes the statement. Any statement modified or superseded will not be deemed, except as modified or superseded, to be a part of this registration statement.

Item 6. Indemnification of Directors and Officers
Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (DGCL) provides that a corporation may indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of the corporation), by reason of the fact that he is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with the action, suit or proceeding if he acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe his conduct was unlawful. Section 145 also provides that a corporation similarly may indemnify any person serving in that capacity who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that he is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys fees) actually and reasonably incurred in connection with the defense or settlement of the action or suit, if he acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation and except that no indemnification will be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which the person will have been adjudged to be liable to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the Delaware Court of Chancery or another court in which the action or suit was brought determines on application that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all of the circumstances of the case, the person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for the expenses that the Delaware Court of Chancery or the other court deems proper. Our certificate of incorporation and bylaws provide that indemnification shall be to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL for all our current or former directors or officers. As permitted by the DGCL, our certificate of incorporation provides that we will indemnify our directors against liability to us or our stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except (1) for any breach of the directors duty of loyalty to us or our stockholders, (2) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or knowing violation of law, (3) under Section 174 of the DGCL or (4) for any transaction from which a director derived an improper personal benefit.
Item 7. Exemption From Registration Claimed
Item 8. Exhibits
See Index to Exhibits on page 7.
Item 9. Undertakings
(a) We hereby undertake:
(1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:
|(i)||to include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;|
to reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of this registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the matters stated above, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed the value we registered)
and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission in accordance with Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the Calculation of Registration Fee table in the effective registration statement; and
|(iii)||to include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to that information in the registration statement;|
provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant in accordance with Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement.
(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each post-effective amendment will be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the offered securities, and the offering of the securities at that time will be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.
(b) We hereby undertake that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of our annual report under Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plans annual report under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement will be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the offered securities, and the offering of securities at that time will be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(c) To the extent that indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant in accordance with the provisions mentioned above, or otherwise, we have been advised that in the opinion of the Commission indemnification under those circumstances is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against those liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by the director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of the issue.
In accordance with the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, ResMed Inc. certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused and authorized the officers whose signatures appear below to sign this Registration Statement on its behalf by, in the City of Poway, State of California, USA, and in the City of Sydney, State of New South Wales, Australia on January 31, 2007.
