Philips launches V680 critical care ventilator in Europe

7 January 2015

Philips has launched in Europe the V680 ventilator for hospital respiratory care, offering both invasive and non-invasive ventilation.

The ventilator is designed for smoother transition from ventilation to natural breathing, and helps enhance patient care and minimize ventilator associated infection rates.

“To ensure optimum respiratory care and a reduction in asynchrony, ventilators must be safe, effective, easy to apply and adapt to a patients’ changing condition,” commented Professor F. Javier Belda, Head of the Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care, University of Valencia, Spain. “The V680 offers integrated invasive and noninvasive ventilation modes as well as flexible mask options. This helps my team facilitate quick therapy transitions and keeps our patients as comfortable as possible — while its clinically proven safety record is reassuring.”

Arne Cohrs, Sales and Marketing Director, Therapeutic Care, Patient Care and Monitoring Solutions, Philips Healthcare EMEA, said, “The V680 ventilator has been developed in partnership with physicians, leading to customised technology that can be simply and quickly adjusted to respond to patient needs. Our goal is to speed the time to non-invasive ventilation, ultimately reducing hospital stays and associated cost burden.”

The Philips V680 Ventilator will be available in several European markets by early 2015. US launch is pending 510(k) clearance.
