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.

F&P 850™ System
for Noninvasive Ventilation

For Invasive and Noninvasive patients




The F&P 850 Humidifier is capable of operating in two control modes; 37 °C, 44mg/L for invasive therapy and 31 °C, 32mg/L for noninvasive therapy.

NIV System Setup

The F&P 850 System for noninvasive ventilation (NIV) is comprised of the MR850 Heated Humidifier with the MR290 Autofill Chamber and RT Series breathing circuits with circuit step-down options. 

Humidity is delivered to one of three types of Nivairo™ face masks. These are available as vented and non vented full face masks.

Single-Limb Set Up
For a single limb set up using NIV specific ventilators, humidity can be delivered via our low-resistance noninvasive circuits to the RT045 and new RT047 NIV face masks.

Dual-Limb Setup
For a dual limb setup using ICU ventilators, humidity can be delivered via Evaqua™ circuits to the Nivairo RT046 full face masks.



Our RT-series Adult Noninvasive Breathing Circuits incorporate heater-wire technology to help reduce condensate and help you deliver quality NIV therapy
