Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is a leading designer and manufacturer of a range of innovative healthcare devices including heated humidification devices used in respiratory and acute care and CPAPs and masks for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Our philosophy is to provide medical devices which help improve patient care and outcomes. This is central to the design and manufacture of all our products.
History of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare:
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare entered the respiratory care market in 1971 with a unique respiratory humidifier system for use in critical care. In 1992 we entered the Obstructive Sleep Apnea market, with a heated humidifier for the application of CPAP therapy. This was later followed by the first ever CPAP to include a fully integrated humidifier. This history of innovation has continued through the years and most recently with the launch of the new F&P ICON™ CPAP platform in 2010, a CPAP that blends seamlessly into the bedroom environment and helps to overcome some of the psychological barriers patients can experience when introduced to CPAP therapy.
