Our unique anesthesia technology makes the difference

AGC Anesthesia Flow

Automatic Gas Control (AGC)

Safe and easy low-flow anesthesia

Automatic Gas Control (AGC) makes low-flow anesthesia delivery safe. Automation eliminates the need of continuous manual adjustments: with simple pre-settings, specifying the targeted inspired oxygen, end-tidal anesthetic agent levels and required speed, AGC solves the rest. Our innovation offers high precision combined with improved comfort and increased safety. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

o2guard anesthesia flow


Active hypoxia prevention

Our O2Guard is the world’s only system for active hypoxia prevention. Should the inspired oxygen level drop below 21%, the O2Guard automatically overrules the settings and increases the flow of oxygen. [7]

Mac brain anesthesia flow

MAC Brain

Informed anesthetic dosing

To facilitate decision-making when planning and dosing anasthesia agents, we created MAC Brain. Using mathematical models and data-driven algorithms, MAC Brain visualizes the difference in agent effect in the lungs and the brain - actings as a decision-support framework to help guide anesthetic dosing.[8]

Lung recruitment flow anesthesia

Lung recruitment

Gentle steps against atelectasis

Our lung recruitment maneuvers have become the tool of choice to counter
atelectasis, to improve oxygenation and help prevent postoperative complications. [9] [10]

Ventilation anesthesia flow

Ventilation performance

Offering ICU-grade ventilation

Innovative Flow Core Technology is designed to promote efficient agent usage, providing the power and precision to ventilate even challenging patients. [11] [12]

User-friendly workstation in the OR

Developed together with clinicians, the compact Flow-c anesthesia machine is designed to facilitate a great scope for configuration and patient safety. With an intuitive interface and emphasis on ease of use [16], our anesthesia solutions ensure a streamlined workflow and efficiency in the operating room that offers enhanced cost control and resource management.
