Care drives our commitment to create innovative products inspired by patient needs.

Improving care and outcomes

About us

Welcome to Fisher & Paykel Healthcare. We are a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of products and systems for use in acute and chronic respiratory care, surgery and the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. Driven by a strong sense of purpose, we are working to improve patient care and outcomes through inspired and world-leading healthcare solutions. The needs of our customers and their patients drive everything we do. We call this commitment Care by Design.

Our story

In 1969, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare changed the way the world delivers respiratory care to critically ill patients in hospital by creating a humidifier used in invasive ventilation.

Since then, we have expanded our product offering to other clinical applications, including noninvasive ventilation, nasal high flow therapy and surgery, and, today, our products and systems are used in both hospitals and homes in more than 120 countries.

In hospitals, our medical devices and technologies help clinicians deliver the best possible patient care, so patients can transition into less-acute care settings, recover faster and avoid more serious conditions.

In homes and long-term care settings, our products are used to treat patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and chronic respiratory illnesses, such as COPD.

Each year, we work closely with healthcare providers to improve our products, develop new therapies, change clinical practice and reduce costs for the world’s healthcare systems.
