COVID-19

Fisher & Paykel's Optiflow™ product for Nasal High Flow therapy is being utilized by affected hospitals to treat patients and is being considered by others as they prepare for the potential further impact.

Nasal High Flow has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) for the treatment of patients with COVID-19 with airborne precautions. The WHO refers to the usage of Nasal High Flow therapy for pre-oxygenation before intubation and for non-invasive respiratory support with close monitoring for clinical deterioration in selected patients with hypoxemic respiratory failure.

Most of the clinical experience with COVID-19 patients currently comes from clinicians in China, South Korea, and Italy.
