Flow-c Anesthesia Machine

Everyday work
that simply flows

Features

Low-flow anesthesia the safest[1] way

Unique hypoxic guard protects your patients.

Reduce the risk
of hypoxia with O₂Guard

Unlike hypoxic guards in conventional anesthesia machines, OGuard actively intervenes if the inspired oxygen concentration drops below 21%, reducing the risk of hypoxic mixtures.

Flow Volume Reflector Indicator

Visual guidance
when lowering the flows

The VRI (Volume Reflector Indicator) is a useful visual guide that enables
you to optimize the rebreathing fraction and thus save anesthetic agent.

This tool makes it simple to set the optimal Fresh Gas Flow (FGF) and minute volume ratio. Agent consumption can easily be monitored via the interface.

Invitation to interactive low-flow anesthesia course

During 1.5 days you will learn that, with the right knowledge and equipment, low- and minimal flow anesthesia is safe and easy to use, saving time and anesthetic agents. The course content includes theoretical presentations, hands-on animal workshops and demo during live surgery. 

Join us in Gent, Belgium 8-9 Nov, 2018!

Ventilation performance

Next-generation technology at the core

The Flow family was created by the engineers behind the world-class Servo ventilator platform. The innovative technology at the heart of the Flow-c ensures superior ventilation performance with significantly reduced anesthetic agent usage. [2][3]

Ensuring accurate and precise gas delivery

Our patented Volume Reflector is a smart rebreathing system. In combination with Servo gas modules, it enables accurate tidal volumes down to 5 ml, providing better ventilation performance compared to bag-in-bottle, turbine and piston-operated systems.[2]

The rigid Volume Reflector is never empty to ensure uninterrupted ventilation, and compensates effectively for leakage.

To minimize the risk of hypoxic mixturesm the Volume Reflector is oxygen driven. It has a small system volume for fast wash-in and wash-out and a rebreathing fraction of 98%.

Getinge Flow-c gas modules

Enabling ICU-quality ventilation

The proven Servo gas modules deliver up to 200 l/min inspiratory flow and are capable of adjusting pressure and flow several times within every breath, according to each patient’s needs.

Fast and precise delivery of anesthestic agents

Electronic injection technology enables precise delivery of agents, primarily during the inspiratory phase, with minimal waste.

The lightweight and maintenance-free vaporizers can be refilled and exchanged while the machine is running, and do not require annual calibration.

Only 2.7 liters

A small system volume (2.7 l) allows fast wash-in and wash-out which saves time and agent consumption.

Secure investment

Optimizing uptime and efficiency

With Flow-c, we have designed every detail to minimize the overall cost of ownership. From innovations that reduce consumption of anesthetic agents to extensive training programs. With shared components and a common user-fiendly interface, we make it easy to manage a fleet with many different Flow models.

Simplified cleaning and maintenance

When cleaning the Flow Anesthesia Machine only 7 parts need to be removed, saving costs and supporting infection control.

Preventive maintenance is optimized to reduce complexity with few and easily accessible parts only changed every two years.

Getinge Care: protecting your investment

Optimizing equipment services is an excellent way to boost productivity and reduce costs. A Getinge Care service plan ensures your equipment always performs to its full potential, allowing you to focus on saving lives.

High quality consumables

We offer an extensive range of readily available consumables. These are designed for the highest possible level of patient safety and outstanding ease of use.

Patient data at your fingertips

MSync helps you to connect your Flow-c fleet to your patient monitor, HIS or patient data management system (PDMS). Clinical and patient data are transferred in real time to support clinical decision-making.
