Important Customer Notice Temporary Supply Issues

Ref: 2021/1325 ICN Number: 1325

As part of the NHS preparations for Respiratory Syncytial Virus, two ICU clinical consumable products have been suspended:

  • FDD5180 – Airvo 2 Humidification packs and parts
  • FDB494 – Optiflow 850 Humidification system.

This is to protect stockholding and allocate volumes as determined by the NHS England and NHS Improvement consumption model. It aims to ensure that trusts continue to have access to the consumables they need to provide patient care and to avoid unnecessary risks of stock shortages.


  • FDD5180 and FDB494 are currently unavailable to order.
  • See our Downloads section for further information on the suspended product codes.

  • Please note, the request must be a clinical necessity and it is advised to provide as much detail as possible in support of each request.
  • This ICN will be updated when the affected products are reinstated and available to order, or if any additional codes are affected.
