We have two major product groups, Respiratory & Acute Care and Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Respiratory & Acute Care
We offer a broad range of heated humidification products and systems for use during the treatment of respiratory conditions by ventilation or oxygen therapy, which form part of a comprehensive family of solutions for all therapies in the F&P Respiratory Care Continuum.
Incorporating patented and other proprietary technologies, our respiratory devices are designed to overcome many of the challenges of effectively creating, controlling and delivering gases to a patient's airway at close to physiologically normal levels of temperature and humidity.
Our therapy solutions incorporate technologies designed to benefit both the clinician and the patient, translating to efficient delivery of care and improved patient outcomes.
Our products include respiratory humidifiers, single-use and reusable chambers and breathing circuits, infant resuscitators, infant warmers and accessories. We also offer humidification systems for use in surgical procedures to condition dry carbon dioxide gas to normal physiological levels of temperature and humidity.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is a leading innovator that excels in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). We entered this market with the introduction of a heated humidifier, adapted from our sophisticated ICU technology, as a simple adjunct to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. The aim was to improve patient comfort and compliance to a treatment, which was at the time not very well tolerated. Heated humidification has since become a widely accepted part of CPAP therapy. Today, we offer a comprehensive range of CPAP devices, masks and humidifiers that deliver the best in sleep performance for an energized lifestyle.
