Engineered to help patients breathe more naturally

The Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator helps enable patients to breathe more naturally through some of the most innovative breath delivery technology available.

Our simple, secure, and smart design provides more natural ventilation that may help improve patient comfort.([FOOTNOTE=Grasso S, Puntillo F, Mascia L, et al. Compensation for increase in respiratory workload during mechanical ventilation. Pressure-support versus proportional-assist ventilation. Am J Respir Crit Care Med. 2000;161(3 Pt 1):819-26.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])


Our innovative user interface features a highly customisable display with intuitive screen navigation.


The Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator provides a unique ventilator assurance feature which, in the event of certain system failures, will continue to deliver ventilatory support as close to the preset settings as feasible, and has 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 and highly configurable touch screen

Graphs may be scaled and enlarged to full screen to improve visibility.

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.

Screen configurability

  • 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. 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.

Safety Features

Expiratory filtration system

The Puritan Bennett paediatric-adult expiratory filtration systems reduce particles, virus and bacteria in the patient’s exhaled gas while using the Puritan Bennett 980 ventilator, protecting the ventilator’s exhalation and spirometry systems and other people in the room from airborne pathogens:

  • Minimum of 99.97% filtration efficiency.
  • Meets CDC requirement for N100 filtration equivalency.([FOOTNOTE=NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards. (2007). Retrieved from],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

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. The ventilation assurance feature is unique to the Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator and may help improve safety for ventilated patients in the event of certain system failures.

Stand-by mode

  • Stand-by mode pauses ventilation and preserves settings when the patient is disconnected; auto-detects patient upon reconnection; and automatically resumes ventilation without the need to push additional buttons.

Status display

  • There is an additional screen located on the breath delivery unit (BDU) that provides a redundant check of ventilator operation.

Hot swappable batteries

  • The Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator houses up to two batteries (up to four with a compressor installed).
  • Batteries may be changed or swapped out without having to power down the ventilator and interrupt patient ventilation.


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 data systems.

Patient Monitoring

Proximal flow sensor

  • The proximal flow sensor measures flow, pressure, and tidal volume right at the patient wye in neonate applications.

Synchrony Tools

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 our unique synchrony tools from Medtronic for Puritan Bennett™ ventilators.
