FDA clears Covidien's ventilator for smaller infants

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The US FDA has granted 510(k) clearance for a new version of Covidien's Puritan Bennett 840 critical care ventilator. The device can now be used for smaller neonates (those who weigh 300g or more). The Boulder, Colorado company has achieved this by reducing the ventilator's minimum tidal volume to 2ml. Tidal volume refers to the volume of air that is inhaled and exhaled during normal breathing. The device can also be used to provide ventilation support for adults.
