Covidien launches portable ventilator in Europe

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Covidien has launched its Puritan Bennett 560 portable ventilator in Europe. The device weighs 4.5kg and has a battery life of around 11 hours, allowing patients to carry out everyday activities away from their home. It features a battery life indicator showing the remaining charge in hours and minutes. The ventilator, which Covidien CE marked in May 2010, can be used for both adults and children, and also records patient information which can be transferred to a computer via a USB device and analysed by a clinician. It is compatible with Boulder, Colorado-based Covidien’s Nellcor-branded DAR filters, which can reduce a patient’s risk of coming into contact with bacteria and viruses that cause respiratory illnesses.
