Flow Family bring ICU level ventilation to the OR

Innovative Flow Core Anesthesia Technology is designed to promote efficient agent usage, providing the power and precision to ventilate even the most challenging patients. This is due to the combination of our Volume Reflector with its smart re-breathing system and our proven Servo gas modules, adjusting pressure and flow constantly within every breath.

A standard feature in Flow Family anesthesia machines.

How our Flow anesthesia machines help deliver high ventilation performance

High sensitivity and accuracy

Thanks to our Servo technology

The advanced and well-proven Servo gas modules are integrated into the Flow  anesthesia machines to provide high ventilatory capabilities. This helps regulate pressure and flow accurately within the same breath and helps you respond to each individual patient’s pulmonary needs.

Ventilation anesthesia flow

Increased anesthetic control

With fast wash-in and wash-out

A small system volume, along with powerful maintenance-free injection vaporizers, provides a fast wash-in and wash-out. This saves time during both induction and emergence.

There is no other anesthesia ventilator.


Safe low-flow anesthesia without interruptions even during leakage

Our Volume Reflector technology replaces traditional bag-in-bottle and piston-operated systems. The Volume Reflector never empties while sustaining accuracy and responsiveness, even during low-flow anesthesia.

To minimize the risk of hypoxia, the breathing circuit compensates with O₂ during leakage and the O₂Guard reacts when FIO₂ becomes dangerously low. 

Sustainability anesthesia flow

Save anesthetic gas and money

And be kinder to the environment

The Volume Reflector technology allows for 98% of expired gases to be re-breathed. This increases cost savings on agent and gas usage with low- and minimal-flow practices.

Low-flow anesthesia can also be automated safely, to make it easier for the  anesthesiologist.

More unique innovations for our anesthesia machines

With our Flow anesthesia technology you can easily ensure the perfect flow for each patient, finetuning anaesthesia delivery in real time, breath by breath.
