Medtronic Puritan Bennett 980 Features

The Covidien Puritan Bennett 980 ventilator provides mechanical ventilation from neonatal patients to adults who require respiratory support. The Puritan Bennett 980 can be used for intra-hospital transport to provide continuous ventilatory support with oxygen and compressed medical air from an internal air compressor or external air source. This Medtronic ventilator delivers oxygen concentrations from 21% to 100%. The PB980 can administer ventilatory support to patients invasively or non-invasively who require positive pressure ventilation, assist/control, SIMV, or spontaneous modes of ventilation. It can be used in areas such as general care floors, operating rooms, and intensive care units. This Puritan Bennett Ventilator also has a battery backup that provides power in case AC power is lost. Prior versions of the Puritan Bennett ventilation systems include the Puritan Bennett 840.

  • Simple, easy-to-use, and highly customizable touchscreen user-interface.
  • 15” display that rotates 170° about a vertical axis in either direction.
  • Display shows ventilator, apnea, and alarm settings, patient data, waveforms, and current alarm banners.
  • Unique ventilator assurance feature that will continue to deliver ventilatory support as close to the preset setting in the event of certain system failures.
