Using the F&P 950™ Humidifier with NIV

Patient tolerance is important to the success of respiratory therapy.Different patients may tolerate various levels of humidity.

The F&P 950 Humidifier comes with three patient outlet temperatures to suit the varying comfort and tolerance preferences of your patients.
  • 31 °C 
  • 29 °C 
  • 27 °C 

By compensating for the drying effects of ventilation gases, humidity may help with patient tolerance which may increase NIV efficacy.1
