Use of Servo ventilators for patients with COVID-19
In light of the current situation surrounding Coronavirus, COVID-19, we aim to provide guidance on appropriate infection prevention and control (IPC) measures for the use of Servo ventilators, when treating patients confirmed with or suspected of having COVID-19.
Use of one ventilator for multiple patients simultanously
In view of the situation with the Coronavirus disease COVID-19, we hereby want to provide the following statement regarding the use of one ventilator for multiple patients simultaneously.
Use of Sokinox and Servino delivery systems for COVID-19 patients patients with Novel Coronavirus
Guidance on appropriate infection prevention and control (IPC) measures for the use of Sokinox and Servino nitric oxide delivery and monitoring system for COVID-19 patients.
Regarding inquiry of reuse of Servino and Sokinox flow sensor
The flow sensor of the Servino and the Sokinox system are disposable items and should be replaced in-between patients. This is described in the User Manual of the system.
Ventilating ICU patients using anesthesia machines
The possibility to repurpose Flow-i, Flow-c and Flow-e anesthesia machines for use in the ICU as a ventilator only.
Use of longer panel cables for Servo ventilators
In view of the situation with the Coronavirus disease COVID-19, we hereby want to provide the following statement regarding the use of a longer panel cable between the patient unit and the Servo ventilators graphical user interface,
Q&A - Getinge oxygenators and cardiopulmonary products
The usage of Getinge oxygenators and cardiopulmonary products in COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 patients. The Q&A provides an overview about the current situation and is mainly based on technical and theoretical considerations of which Getinge is aware.
PiCCO practical help
Find out more how to optimize PiCCO thermodilution measurements in daily use. Containing comprehensive practical support, the PiCCO Trouble Shooting Guide assists clinicians and technicians when in need for handling information.
Use of out-of service ventilator systems
In view of the situation with the Coronavirus disease COVID-19, we hereby want to provide the following statement regarding the use of our older out-of-service ventilator systems.
Improve your knowledge on mechanical ventilation
Easy to use critical care ventilators with tools to help you reduce complications and wean earlier during invasive and non-invasive ventilation.
Diagnose pulmonary edema at bedside
Hemodynamic insights and quantification of pulmonary edema (ELWI) and it’s cause (PVPI) - directly at bedside - allow intensive care physicians to take rapid therapeutic decisions.
Ventilating ICU patients using Flow anesthesia machines
Improve your knowledge on our anesthesia machines, Flow-i, Flow-c and Flow-e, that use the same core ventilation technology as the Servo ICU ventilators.

Vendôme: Getinge La Calhène, at the heart of the fight against the Covid-19
With its 254 employees, Getinge La Calhène, a subcontractor to the pharmaceutical industry, is booming. Yesterday, 141 people were working on the site.
Solutions that enable discoveries of new vaccines by providing sterile environments and transfer solutions
As drug manufacturers race against the clock to find a cure to the coronavirus, it’s crucial that they can test and prepare the vaccines without risking contamination, as well as transfer sterile components for the production process in a safe way. A complete solution for this is offered from Getinge’s Life Science hub in French city Vendôme.
Getinge’s state-of-the-art ventilation solutions
Mechanical ventilation – the most used short-term life support technique worldwide for patients that cannot breathe on their own – is a key component in the ongoing fight against the new coronavirus COVID-19.
Treatment options and solutions
For more in-depth information, we have gathered findings on applicable therapies, treatments, and offerings which may be helpful when treating patients with COVID-19.
Mechanical ventilation with people in mind
Our goal is to help keep your adult, pediatric and neonatal patients as safe and comfortable as possible with easy to use, easy to apply ventilation.
Improve patient outcomes during mechanical ventilation
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
Explore our broad portfolio for Mechanical Ventilation
Easy to use critical care ventilators with tools to help you reduce complications and wean earlier during invasive and non-invasive ventilation; from ICU to intermediate care; and for all patient categories.
Explore our broad portfolio for Advanced Monitoring
Practice-oriented monitoring systems and disposables that are used for diagnosis and treatment of the critically ill patient.
Understand complex hemodynamic conditions
With the know-how of Advanced Patient Monitoring, we guide you to define the best individual treatment for patients with challenging hemodynamics conditions.
Advanced Patient Monitoring
The hemodynamic condition of a patient plays in many indications a significant role . Especially in the critical ill patient deep insight knowledge about hemodynamics contributes to a better outcome in therapeutic treatment.
Do you know the different therapy options of ECLS?
Stabilizing blood circulation and respiratory functions is crucial when treating acute care patients. Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can do exactly that. These therapies have become a standard of care in recent years.
Explore our broad portfolio for Extracorporeal Life Support
Our broad, high-end product portfolio for short-term or prolonged extracorporeal life support (ECLS) or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) includes a choice of devices and consumables to provide individual and sufficient extracorporeal heart and/or lung support, such as centrifugal pumps, oxygenators, heater units, tubing sets, and catheters and cannulae.
Achieve tangible outcomes in the ICU with the help of user-friendly and reliable solutions. We help you create an effective healing environment that enables acute care therapies and promotes early mobility.
OR and ICU Planning
Patient, staff and instrument workflows in the OR and the ICU are subject to intensive analysis. Our long time experience in hospital planning and the extensive expertise in medical technologies result in comprehensive solutions that optimize the long term workflow.
The isolation unit is designed with seven isolation rooms, and is distinguished from a normal intensive care unit by the airlock in front of the patient room, and patient toilet built into the isolation room.
