Including Synchronized NIV and NIV+

Help Protect the Most Vulnerable Newborns

We designed the Puritan Bennett™ 980 neonatal ventilator to deliver ventilation that helps enhance comfort and care for NICU patients, with a focus on synchrony, accuracy, and leak compensation.

Hear what leading neonatologists have to say about NIV+ software

There are advances in software technology designed to provide greater insights into not just airway leaks, but pressure delivery.

Puritan Bennett™ 980 Ventilator

NIV+ Software Quick Reference Guide

NIV+ software for the Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator is designed to measure end inspiratory and end expiratory pressures at the patient interface.

This provides valuable information to the clinician and may reduce the uncertainty around effective pressure delivery to the patient. It also provides a robust means of determining disconnect, especially when leaks are present.

Learn how to set up and configure the NIV+ software option.
