Introducing the Puritan Bennett™ 980 Ventilator: Engineered to help patients breathe more naturally
The new Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator helps enable patients to breathe more naturally† through some of the most innovative breath delivery technology available.
Our simple, safe and smart design provides more natural ventilation that may help improve patient comfort.1
Our innovative user interface features a highly customizable display with intuitive screen navigation.
The newly designed Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator provides a unique ventilator assurance feature and an integrated expiratory filtration system.
Advanced synchrony tools help clinicians set the ventilator to adapt to their patients’ unique needs and help provide the appropriate level of support throughout the breath.
Intuitive, highly configurable touch screen
Unique expiratory filtration system
Status display provides additional information about battery status, power source, peak pressure and other vital monitored information
Digital communication board for USB connections and HDMI output
Hot swappable batteries
Intuitive and Highly Configurable Touch Screen
Graphs may be scaled and enlarged to full screen to improve visibility.
Using the pause button, you can pause the screen and review the last 60 seconds of patient data.
In situations where you may not be directly in front of the screen, or during teaching situations where there are several people in the room, the large-font screen can provide greater visibility to patient data.
- Several configuration options enable you to see as little or as much information as you need.
- Patient data in the top banner may be configured to the patient need or to match your workflow document. Additional patient data can be accessed by scrolling right to left in the upper right corner. Patient data cells may be left blank to reduce the amount of visible patient data.
The touch screen also offers easy access to five graph and loop layout options.
Unique ventilation assurance feature
- In the event of certain system failures, the ventilator will continue to deliver ventilatory support as close to the preset settings as feasible. Ventilation assurance feature is unique to the Puritan Bennett 980 ventilator that may help improve safety for ventilated patients in the event of certain system failures.
- Stand-by mode pauses ventilation when the patient is disconnected and preserves settings; auto-detects patient upon reconnection; and automatically resumes ventilation without the need to push additional buttons.
- There is an additional screen located on the breath delivery unit (BDU) that provides a redundant check of ventilator operation
PB 980 Status Display
Hot swappable batteries
- The Puritan Bennett 980 ventilator houses up to two batteries without a compressor installed.
- Batteries may be changed or swapped out without having to power down the ventilator and interrupt patient ventilation.
Expiratory filtration system
- The unique expiratory filtration system of the Puritan Bennett ventilators helps provide a high level of safety from cross contamination for both patients and staff members.
- Puritan Bennett filters have a rating of > 99.97%.
Digital communication board
- The digital communication board provides multiple USB ports for connections to external drives and an HDMI output port that can be used to project the touch screen externally.
Connecting to EMR system
- The Puritan Bennett 980 ventilator has several options for connecting to external systems.
Proximal flow sensor
- The proximal flow sensor measures flow, pressure and tidal volume right at the patient wye in neonate applications.
- The possibility of higher mortality
Advanced synchrony tools help clinicians set the ventilator to adapt to their patients' unique needs and help provide the appropriate level of support throughout the breath. Learn more about unique synchrony tools from Covidien for Puritan Bennett ventilators.
