Due to increased worldwide demand for ventilators, we are regularly getting requests regarding ventilator equipment. Fisher & Paykel Healthcare does not manufacture mechanical ventilators. We produce other respiratory support and humidification products, and associated consumables.
Using improvised materials and configuring Fisher & Paykel Healthcare products in a manner that is outside their intended use raises some concerns around the safety and efficacy of our devices.
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare products are rigorously designed and tested before they are used by patients. We understand healthcare professionals may have to improvise to find solutions to cope with COVID-19. However, we cannot attest to the safety or performance of our devices when they are used in unapproved ways.
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare recommends extreme caution when using filters and valves in unapproved or improvised ways. Resistance to flow, filter efficacy in different conditions, instrumental dead-space, flow dynamics through the system, and the potential for gas-trapping are just some of the important safety factors healthcare professionals should consider.
