    Ventilation Connectors and Fittings

    Medical ventilation involves methods and therapies that supply oxygen to patients who need it to breathe. There are two principal forms of ventilation―mechanical ventilation and oxygen therapy. Both types of ventilation are used as key treatments for respiratory problems.

    Mechanical Ventilation – When Patients Can’t Breathe on Their Own

    Mechanical ventilation moves oxygen to and from the lungs through an external device, connected via tubing with CPC quick connects or ventilation fittings, to the patient. It’s a machine designed to breathe―oxygen in, carbon dioxide out―for a patient who is unable to breathe or is breathing insufficiently. The ventilation machine induces artificial respiration by pushing oxygen to the lungs for delivery throughout the body.

    Oxygen Therapy – When Patient Is Not Getting Adequate Oxygen

    Oxygen therapy uses an additional oxygen source to manage blood oxygen levels and prevent carbon monoxide toxicity. Oxygen is dispensed in liquid or gaseous form via tubing connected with CPC ventilation fittings or quick disconnects. The oxygen device can be attached to other medical devices, such as ventilators and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, to improve the efficiency of the treatment. 

    Take a Breath, CPC Ventilation Connectors and Fittings Are Ready to Help

    CPC connectors and fittings are used by ventilation equipment OEMs to ensure their machine tubing is being connected easily and without leaks. Featuring precise hose barbs and thread forms, CPC’s broad range of ventilation connectors and fittings include tee, y, straight, screw threads, multiline options and more, available at medical grade. For limited use or disposable applications, CPC ventilation connectors and fittings are the preferred choice for high quality, precision-molded fluid components and small flow applications. 

    Trusted Reliability

    CPC couplings and fittings are purpose-built for ventilation applications. They help deliver critical oxygen, without leaks, to patients so they can breathe. User-friendly, ergonomic designs improve usability which minimizes distractions and eliminates misconnections.

    Dependable Durability

    CPC leak-free ventilation connectors and fittings deliver optimized flowrates with excellent flow to size ratio for superior performance. Featuring non-spill, closed-system designs, CPC quick disconnect couplings ensure secure fits and reliable connections necessary in surgical, hospital and even home environments.

    Overall Robustness

    CPC offers a wide range of couplings and fittings that are compatible with mechanical ventilation and oxygen therapy equipment on the market today. CPC couplings are designed to provide seamless and safe oxygen handling solutions. All CPC medical oxygen tubing connectors and fittings are rigorously tested ─ including materials testing, product testing and torture testing to failure ─ to meet product specifications.

    Straightforward Serviceability

    When mechanical ventilation and oxygen therapy devices need repairs or replacements, CPC’s thumb latch ensures intuitive and rapid disconnections. Additionally, CPC leak-free, medical oxygen tubing connectors and disconnects ensure safety when working with potentially harmful fluids.

    Connection Assurance

    CPC medical oxygen tubing connectors help make a cleaner, faster and safer connection with ventilation equipment. Quality FitQuik® Connectors from CPC are instrumentation-grade fittings that ensure a secure fit in even the most demanding oxygen ventilation applications. These ventilation fittings feature precise hose barbs and thread forms to ensure the right fit, every time.
