Covidien has just announced that it is releasing three variations of its Puritan Bennett 840 ventilator to the US market:
The Puritan Bennett 840 Neonatalventilator helps clinicians safely deliver, manage and monitor a ventilation regimen tailored for even the smallest and most critically ill neonatal patients. It offers the ability to set a tidal volume as small as 2 mL for neonates weighing as little as 300 grams without having to change to another ventilator.
The Puritan Bennett 840 Universalventilator for every patient type, from neonatal to adult, includes a neonatal CPAP mode that enables clinicians to flexibly deploy noninvasive ventilation in neonates. It supports patient-ventilator synchrony, which has been shown to facilitate spontaneous breathing. The ventilator includes features that effectively match the patient’s respiratory demand and adapt to changes in patient condition.
The Puritan Bennett 840 Pediatric-Adult ventilator for pediatric to adult patients helps clinicians provide improved levels of ventilatory support by offering multiple therapies of ventilation, including invasive and noninvasive methods, as well as more advanced modes of ventilation.
