Background and Identification
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Corporation Limited (FPH) is a manufacturer, designer, and marketer of equipment and systems for use in respiratory care, acute care, and the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. Fisher & Paykel is based in New Zealand, though their products are sold in approximately 120 countries worldwide; the company makes the majority of its revenue from exporting products.
A ventilator is a machine that provides mechanical ventilation by moving breathable air into and out of a person’s lungs to deliver breaths to a patient who is breathing insufficiently or physically unable to breathe. Modern ventilators are computerized microprocessor-controlled machines that are primarily used in intensive care medicine, home care, emergency medicine, and anesthesiology. Ventilators are sometimes called “respirators,” though medical terminology uses the word “respirator” to refer to a protective face-mask.
Fisher & Paykel focuses on two major product groups, Respiratory and Acute Care, and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. In its Respiratory and Acute Care sector, the company produces respiratory humidifiers, single-use and reusable chambers, breathing circuits, and accessories. These products are designed to humidity and deliver the gases patients receive during mechanical ventilation, non-invasive ventilation, oxygen therapy, and laparoscopic surgery.
Fisher & Paykel medical ventilators include the name “Fisher & Paykel” printed in blue font on the device. Fisher & Paykel produces a range of medical ventilators with various body styles and purposes.
