Peace of mind for clinicians.

The Puritan Bennett™ 560 (PB560) portable ventilator helps patients live with greater independence while giving clinicians peace of mind. Lightweight, reliable, and trusted — the system comes with a long battery life to ensure continuous support for you and your patients.

Key features of the Puritan Bennett™ 560 ventilator include:
  • The internal lithium ion battery provides up to 11 hours of ventilator operation (depending on settings and other factors).([FOOTNOTE=On a fully charged battery at a setting of PIP = 10 cmH20, VT = 200 ml and rate = 20 bpm. Level adjustments, environmental conditions, and physiological characteristics of the patient affect battery operating time.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • A real-time battery life indicator shows how much battery time is left in hours and minutes, based on settings.
  • The Puritan Bennett™ 560 ventilator is compact in design, lightweight at 9.9 lbs (4.5 kg), and quiet (<30 dBA at 1m). It transitions easily from hospital to home.
  • Data portability is enabled via a USB memory device. The USB memory device makes it easy to transfer patient data from a home ventilator to a clinician’s computer.
  • Ventilator parameters and alarm settings are linked to reduce the risk of clinically inappropriate settings.
  • Oxygen enrichment is available using a low pressure oxygen source. Utilize a measurement kit to monitor FiO2 levels.
