Fisher & Paykel Healthcare has unveiled its new F&P 950 Heated Humidification System. The device is the next evolution of its flagship F&P 850 system and features integrated probes, a touch screen with easy controls, and the firm’s Evaqua tech that reduces the amount of condensation that forms inside the system. It’s intended for use in invasive, non-invasive, and Optiflow procedures during which oxygen and humidity are delivered in very precise dosage either through a mask or via a cannula.
From Fisher & Paykel’s announcement:
The F&P 950 system has recently completed 50,000 hours of clinical trials, and usability data has shown meaningful results, particularly in the ease of set up for clinicians. Customer feedback has been very positive with 81% rating it as better than, and 99% rating it the same as or better than, the world-leading F&P 850 system.
The F&P 950 system will initially be available in New Zealand and Australia from August, followed by Canada and Europe. It will be available in the United States on receipt of US FDA clearance.
