Philips introduces new Philips Respironics E30 ventilator to help free up ICU units in wake of COVID-19

New emergency use ventilator with visual and audible alarms allows for high-flow oxygen to support COVID-19 patients with respiratory insufficiency, both invasively and non-invasively

Philips in the last week announced its initiative to quickly scale production of its new Philips Respironics E30 ventilator as a readily available ventilation alternative during the COVID-19 crisis in situations where full-featured, critical care ventilators are not available.

The E30 ventilator features include:

  • The ability to use the device both invasively and non-invasively;
  • Quick set-up and simple operations, allowing healthcare providers with a wide range of skill sets to treat and monitor patients in clinical and field-hospital settings;
  • The ability to accept high-flow oxygen;
  • Recommended circuit set-ups contain a bacterial/viral filter to minimize exposure for healthcare providers when used invasively or noninvasively with example accessories that may be used, such as a full-face, non-vented (without integrated leak) mask, or helmet;
  • On-screen respiratory monitoring to measure and display vital ventilation type parameters such as pressure, tidal volume, respiratory rate, leak, and oxygen saturation, enabling clinicians to evaluate therapy effectiveness;
  • Visual and audible alarms to provide pertinent therapy information to healthcare providers.
According to David White (Chief Scientific Officer at Philips Sleep and Respiratory Care).

Philips is responding to this pressing global need by quickly scaling production of the new Philips Respironics E30 ventilator with the needs of healthcare workers and COVID-19 patients in mind while also complying with medical device quality standards.

As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, healthcare providers are working diligently to treat soaring numbers of patients at a time when there are too few ventilators to provide care. At PPC we are working hard to respond to this pressing global need here at home by making available and improving the delivery time of the required medical essentials.

We are working with Philips to ensure that the new Philips Respironics E30 ventilator is readily available to healthcare workers and COVID-19 patients. Our hope is that this solution will help to free-up ICU ventilators for use in treating the most severe patients.”

 Philips has received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the device for use only during the COVID public emergency. Status of EUA requests can be found on the FDA website.
