Covidien is joining Medtronic

Puritan Bennett™ ventilation systems are designed to promote more natural breathing and help improve patient comfort.1

At Covidien, we believe mechanical ventilation can and should be more natural and less mechanical. Our goal is to make breathing natural enough to reduce the need for sedation and help patients to breathe on their own quickly—so they can get back to their normal lives.

We recognize that more natural breathing is not just good for patients on ventilation. It’s also good for the clinicians who care for the patients and want them to feel better about their experience in the ICU.

That’s why more natural breathing is a key design goal for our trusted line of Puritan Bennett™ ventilation systems. All of our systems are engineered with that thought in mind.
