Due to the worldwide demand for ventilators increasing, we are receiving regular requests about ventilator supply. Fisher & Paykel Healthcare does not manufacture mechanical ventilators. We produce other respiratory support and humidification products, and associated consumables. For the latest updates on using our products to treat patients with COVID‑19, visit our COVID-19 Resource Center.

Redefining expectations

Introducing the F&P 950 Humidification System.

The F&P 950 is a premium performance humidification system designed to be easy to set up and use, minimize condensate, and provide advanced protection.

Features and Benefits 

of the F&P 950 Humidification System

Premium System Performance
Invasively ventilated adult patient with F&P 950


Premium System Performance

In tougher conditions, the F&P 950 humidifier delivers consistent humidity over a wider flow range, with up to 70 L/min for Optiflow™ (nasal high flow).


What happens when humidity drops below 90%?

What happens when humidity drops below 90%?

A study conducted on sheep trachea compared the effects of humidity and temperature on mucus transport. As seen in the video, the results showed that after 15 minutes’ exposure to a 10% decrease in humidity, secretion clearance was impaired and debris remained deposited in the airway.

Easy to set up and use

We asked clinicians around the world what was most important to them and usability ranked number one. A system which is easy to set up and use can save clinicians time, allowing them to focus on the most important task: patient care.

The F&P 950 respiratory humidifier has several key usability features.

Interactive Touch Screen

An interactive touch screen offers individual modes for Invasive, Mask (noninvasive ventilation) and Optiflow therapies, which can easily be selected by means of a drop-down menu. Temperature adjustability has been incorporated for better patient compliance.

Minimal Assembly Connections

The number of assembly connections has been minimized to enable speedy setup and allow healthcare professionals to focus on providing efficient care.

Integrated Probes

Temperature and flow probes have been integrated into the circuit and sensor cartridge to reduce the likelihood of incorrect setup and potential for system alarms.

Minimal condensation

When you see condensation forming in the inspiratory limb, this means humidity is not reaching your patient.

Along with our existing Evaqua™ technology, we have developed a revolutionary inspiratory circuit with technology designed to reduce condensate. Less condensate reduces the likelihood of circuit breakages, therefore promoting a closed system.

In our clinical trial, we found that 83% of nurses didn't have to empty condensate at all during their shift.

AirSpiral™ inspiratory

The AirSpiral inspiratory limb enables efficient performance in a wider ambient temperature range, minimizing rain-out. Pockets of air act as insulating barriers between the ambient conditions and delivered gases to ensure delivery of optimal humidity.
Evaqua icon

Evaqua expiratory

Evaqua technology allows humidity to freely diffuse through the wall of the expiratory limb before it has the opportunity to condense and form into liquid water. This maintains PEEP and promotes a closed system.

Advanced protection

In our commitment to continuous improvement, we have completely changed the way we measure gas temperature and flow in order to increase patient and caregiver protection and reduce the cost burden for hospitals. 

SensiDomes™ icon


Temperature and flow sensing take place through sealed probe covers called SensiDomes. These enable accurate measurement of temperature and flow while acting as a barrier between the probes and the delivered gases.

Intuitive alarms icon

Intuitive alarms

Clear and concise alarms visually represent the cause of the issue and the corrective action required to quickly bring the device back to optimum operation, thus protecting the patient’s airway.

Therapy transition made easy
across the F&P Respiratory Care Continuum

With the same inspiratory limb, the F&P 950 supports transition between therapies, from the most acute invasively-ventilated patients, through to mask and Optiflow patients. All circuit kits can be used for 14 days.
