Philips announced the Canadian launch of the Philips Respironics V680 Ventilator for hospital respiratory care, offering both invasive and noninvasive ventilation. Philips Respironics V680 Ventilator was recently unveiled at the Canadian Society of Respiratory Therapists’ Annual Conference in Calgary, Alberta.
In consultation with clinicians, Philips Respironics V680 Ventilator is designed for smoother transition from ventilation to natural breathing, which may help enhance patient care. Philips Respironics V680 Ventilator joins Philips’ existing portfolio of leading edge patient-centred hospital respiratory care solutions, created to deliver higher quality and comfortable care.
“For nearly 125 years, Philips has been committed to delivering innovations that improve people’s lives. Philips Respironics V680 Ventilator is yet another example of Philips technology that is designed with the needs of both the patient and clinician in mind,” said Iain Burns, President, Philips Canada. “From Healthy Living, Prevention, Diagnosis, to Treatment, Recovery and Home Care, Philips creates solutions that span the health continuum, and it’s how we are delivering on our vision to make the world healthier through innovation.”
Philips Respironics V680 Ventilator is the first ventilator to combine Philips gold standard single-limb noninvasive ventilation (NIV) solution with a fully featured, dual-limb system. Designed to deliver advanced life support for critically ill patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Philips Respironics V680 Ventilator is also designed to make it fast and easy to switch from invasive to noninvasive ventilation to streamline transitions. Personalized to each patient, Philips Respironics V680 Ventilator can help deliver the right therapy at the right time. Philips Respironics V680 Ventilator is the only ventilator to provide continuous measurements of dynamic resistance, compliance, elastance, and plateau pressure in both single and dual-limb invasive and noninvasive modes.
