Breathe Technologies has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its critical care Life2000 ventilation system.

The Life2000 ventilation system is designed to provide continuous or intermittent support for the care of individuals who require mechanical ventilation.

Breathe Technologies president Larry Mastrovich said: “This clearance underscores our commitment to providing healthcare providers and patients with another therapeutic option for critical care ventilation.”

“The Life2000 ventilation system is designed to provide continuous or intermittent support for the care of individuals who require mechanical ventilation.”

Suitable for use in the home and institutional settings, the ventilation system is indicated for adult patients who require positive pressure ventilation delivered invasively, through an ET tube or non-invasively, through a mask.

The ventilator was designed for administration by qualified, trained personnel under the direction of a physician.

Breathe Technologies anticipates that the Life2000 ventilation system will be commercially available in the US later in 2015.
