Flow-e Anesthesia Machine

Smart workspace for flexible performance

Flow-e is a flexible anesthesia machine with a large workspace that makes work easier. Flow-e combines innovative design with the leading features for efficient and lung-protective ventilation.


Experience the new Flow-e

Getinge Flow-e

Smart workspace for flexible performance


  • Large workspace and generous storage
  • Intuitive touch screen, tiltable and rotatable
  • Clever cable management without clutter
  • The Flow core technology for excellent ventilation performance
  • Low-flow anesthesia with a FGF (Fresh Gas Flow) limit of 0.1 l/min, and with visual guidance
  • Active hypoxic guard, the O2Guard, for added safety
  • Automatic lung recruitment option
  • MAC Brain – visualizing agent concentration in the target organ
  • Easy maintenance and training


Designed with you for a smoother workflow

Every detail of the Flow-e has been designed in collaboration with clinicians, ensuring optimal care with high efficiency.

Intuitive control panel

The intuitive touchscreen, with quick access presets, gives you one point of control for all functions.

278 cm rails for flexible mounting

An unmatched length of stepless rails enabling you to add all the monitors and accessories you need.

Cable management without clutter

Cables and hoses are routed inside panel arms and behind the back covers, making the Flow-e neat and easy to clean.

Getinge Flow-c hooks

Smart clips, hooks and arms

For convenient placement of suction device, manual breathing bag and other accessories.

Getinge Flow-e Anesthesia Machine

Convenient USB and light

A useful shelf gives easy access to the USB ports. The workspace is lit by a dimmable LED lamp.


Well-designed drawers take care of your space and storage needs.

Low-flow anesthesia the safest[1] way

Unique hypoxic guard protects your patients.

Reduce the risk
of hypoxia with O₂Guard

Low-flow anesthesia the safest[1] way

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.

Battle atelectasis with stepwise lung recruitment

Stepwise and automated lung recruitment aims to gently open the alveoli. Breath-by-breath compliance, trending the effect of the maneuver can be monitored in real time.

MAC Brain

MAC Brain

Visualizing agent concentration in target organ

Due to pharmacokinetics there is a time delay in agent concentrations between the lungs and the target organ, the brain. The unique MAC Brain tool visualizes the difference to support better dosing and planning of agent delivery.

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-e 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 mixtures 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 anesthetic 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

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-friendly interface, we make it easy to manage a fleet with many different Flow models.

Improve uptime in the OR
- connect your anesthesia machines

Our digital service Getinge Online, connects people, products and ideas, which enables both service teams and clinicians to improve efficiency. Getinge Online gives instant access to equipment data that helps you, your team and the hospital to gain insights and maximize uptime. The data also helps you lower anesthetic agent usage and reduce the environmental footprint. 

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.
