Omnitool software provides clinicians with remote control access to the Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator. Using Omnitool software allows clinicians to remotely view and adjust the ventilator settings outside of a patient room.
During a pandemic, personal protective equipment (PPE) may be in short supply. Being able to remotely access the ventilator from outside the patient room may help reduce staff exposure to pathogens. And with a reduction in required entries into patients’ isolation rooms, clinicians may avoid spending time gowning up and may use less PPE.
