Royal Philips has announced the European launch of the V680 ventilator for hospital respiratory care.

“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.”
