Unique patients.  Unique options. 


Discover the enhanced technical capabilities for your Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator.

We’re continuously improving our ventilator technology to help critical care patients get off the ventilator sooner — and to help you work simple, safe, and smart.

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

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

For intubated neonatal patients

For all ventilated neonatal patients

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. NIV+ software with the Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator helps provide clinicians additional insights on a neonate’s respiratory experience to better support clinicians.


Longer-term patients
Enhanced asynchrony management

Your longer-term patients with chronic lung issues, such as 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 asynchrony management, we recommend:

Break the cycle of patient-ventilator asynchrony

Powering a unique level of patient-ventilator interaction, the IE Sync™ software option for the Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator is designed to put the patient in control of the start and end of every breath. Explore how it can help clinicians provide synchronous ventilatory support for spontaneously breathing adult patients.

Longer-term patients

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:

Acute patients

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:

Compared with current Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator

As additions to the feature set available to the current Puritan Bennett™ 980 ventilator.


During the Public Health Emergency, Puritan Bennett™ 980 remote control software can be used to adjust ventilator settings for any patient that is connected to the ventilator.


The Puritan Bennett™ 980 (PB980) remote access feature is released in accordance with US FDA Enforcement Policy for Ventilators and Accessories and other Respiratory Devices during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Public Health Emergency (published in March 2020). The PB980 ventilator remote access feature has not been cleared by the US FDA and is provided only for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the emergency use of this feature under section 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner.
