High flow oxygen therapy for enhanced patient comfort.

Accurately deliver high flow oxygen to mechanically ventilated patients.

Clinicians need easy-to-use technology to help manage oxygen delivery to patients throughout the continuum of care. The high flow oxygen therapy (HFO2T) software option for the Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator is designed to simplify this process by:

  • Providing a constant flow of heated and humidified oxygen and air to spontaneously breathing patients
  • Using a single-limb circuit
Enhance patient care and comfort.

Available for neonatal, pediatric, and adult patients, our HFO2T software can help you enhance patient care and comfort:

  • In patients with acute hypoxic respiratory failure, HFO2T has been shown to improve oxygenation and comfort, while decreasing morality rates.1
  • In patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), HFO2T has been shown to reduce exacerbations, improve lung function, and enhance quality of life.1
Simple interface for clinician ease of use.

The easy-to-use interface on the Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator allows you to quickly set up the HFO2T software for a new patient. Once the patient is set up, the HFO2T screen displays only the flow and O2 parameters ― allowing you to focus on the most relevant information.

Medtronic announced that it has decided to keep the Patient Monitoring and Respiratory Intervention businesses as a part of Medtronic, given changing market conditions. These businesses will get increased investment and be combined and called Acute Care & Monitoring (ACM).

Medtronic also made the decision to exit the ventilator product line.

Amid evolving market conditions and a shift to lower acuity ventilators, this decision aligns with Medtronic’s strategy to concentrate resources on our market-leading positions and accelerate innovation-driven growth.

While this decision will take time and planning, we are committed to supporting our existing ventilation customers. We will continue to provide service and support throughout the ventilator life cycle, along with meeting our service contract obligations.
