Unique patients.  Unique options.

Upgrade your Puritan Bennett™ 980 mechanical ventilator to help your patients breathe more naturally.*

The Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilators  offer enhanced capabilities tailored to your patients.

We’re continuously improving our mechanical ventilator technology to help critical care patients get off the ventilator sooner — and to help you work simple, safe, and smart. Discover the enhanced technical capabilities for your Puritan Bennett™ ventilator tailored to your specific area of care.

Find the enhanced capability that's best for your patient.

Longer-term patients

Enhanced asynchrony management§

Your longer-term patients with chronic lung issues, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), often have unpredictable breathing patterns. You need ventilator technology that can respond to their asynchrony and help liberate them from the ventilator quickly. 

For enhanced Patient-Ventilator Asynchrony (PVA) management, we recommend: 

Asynchrony management 
with IE Sync™ software

High-flow oxygen therapy 
with HFO2T software 

Remote monitoring 
with Vital Sync™ remote monitoring system

Acute patients

Enhanced lung injury protection||

When a patient has suffered from a sudden lung injury, you want ventilator support to be as short as possible. You need ventilator technology that helps you monitor their progress and quickly gets them back to normal breathing on their own.

For enhanced lung injury protection,|| we recommend:

High-flow oxygen therapy 
with HFO2T software

Lung protection management
with driving pressure (PDRIVE) monitoring software

Remote monitoring 
with Vital Sync™ remote monitoring system

Infectious patients

Enhanced caregiver protection

Keeping your clinicians safe is critical when caring for infectious patients. You need ventilator technology that can help you manage isolated patients on ventilators while minimizing your staff’s exposure. 

For enhanced caregiver protection, we recommend: 

Remote monitoring 
with Vital Sync™ remote monitoring system

NICU patients

Enhanced neonatal lung protection||

When your smallest patients require a ventilator, you want to avoid invasive interventions. You need ventilator technology that helps you manage leaks and monitor the actual pressure applied to the neonate's airway to achieve synchrony and avoid unnecessary intubation. For neonatal patients requiring intubation, you need tools to carefully intervene and protect tiny, fragile airways.

For enhanced neonatal lung protection,|| we recommend:

For nonintubated neonatal patients

High-flow oxygen therapy with HFO2T software

Interface pressure monitoring with NIV+ software

For all ventilated neonatal patients

Remote monitoring
with Vital Sync™ remote monitoring system
