Medline announces a new partnership with Israeli-based respiratory device manufacturer Flight Medical, making its Flight 60 transportable ventilator exclusively available through Medline.

Flight 60 is a turbine-driven ventilator designed to meet the needs of any patient, while offering the tools needed for caregivers to provide optimal ventilation. The device delivers ventilation modes necessary to support high acuity patients while capable of transitioning to/from non-invasive ventilation. With its portability, the ventilator can provide ventilation for pediatric through adult patients.

“This collaboration will make an impact in addressing ventilator availability in the industry and, most importantly, help our providers improve patient care,” says Brian Groskopf, senior director of product management at Medline, “By joining forces with Flight Medical, we strengthen our respiratory portfolio to meet the needs of customers across the continuum of care.”

Flight 60 is a lightweight, compact solution for a broad range of clinical environments. Advanced ventilation modes, precise control mechanisms, and a user-friendly interface ensure optimal performance and ease of use in healthcare, transport and home settings.

Concerns of availability and access to quality ventilators have been elevated in national and international dialogue in recent years as a result of the pandemic and subsequent issues around ventilator product safety.

“Our vision is to avail every patient with a reliable, easy to use and functionality-rich ventilator,” says Amir Kleinstern, CEO of Flight Medical.
