Servo-u MR Conditional Ventilator

servo-u screen mechanical ventilator

Servo-u MR Conditional Ventilator

Designed for safety. Crafted for you.

Ventilate all patient categories during MR scanning, from invasive and non-invasive ventilation to high-flow therapy.[1]

*The Servo ventilator and and/or ventilator options presented on this page may be pending regulatory approvals to be marketed in your country. Contact your Getinge representative for more information.

Overview

Your environment. Your ventilator.

 

Safe positioning

The magnetic field indicator guides you to a safe position, with visual and audible alerts.  The auto-lock handle locks all wheels once your hand leaves the ventilator and the screen turns 360 degrees for flexible placement.

Ventilation for all patients

Servo-u MR supports all patient categories, including neonates. Capabilities range from invasive and non-invasive ventilation to high-flow therapy, and the system comes with a range of defined accessories and consumables.

Protecting the lungs

The distance view lets you see vital parameters at a glance from the control room, and Servo Compass helps you sustain protective ventilation within set targets.

Securing your investment

Our well-developed clinical and support organization backed one of the first MR ventilators more than 25 years ago. We are on hand close to you, serving and providing resources for more than 100 000 Servo ventilators worldwide. 

Put your mind at rest

The magnetic field is strong in the MR room. This is when the magnetic field indicator can help you with positioning. It guides you to a safe position with visual and audible alerts. Green means the ventilator system performs according to specifications. Yellow and red indicates you have gone too close to the MR Scanner.

In good hands

Servo Compass clearly visualizes when driving pressure or tidal volume per kilogram of predicted bodyweight is off target and when adjustments are needed [2]

Precisely calculated dynamic compliance and Stress Index complete the picture, helping you detect changes in lung volume and verify over-distension [3] [4].

Servo-u MR Heliox

Heliox therapy in the MR room

The Servo-u MR is specifically designed with the radiological needs and requirements of the MR room in mind. To enable MR imaging of patients with various types of respiratory diseases, including those with severe airway obstruction, we have added Heliox therapy – a mixture of Helium and Oxygen that facilitates laminar flow and minimizes airway pressure due to its low density.[5]

Heliox therapy promotes better laminar flow with less turbulence

How Heliox therapy promotes better laminar flow with less turbulence.

The illustration above shows how Heliox therapy (right) helps reduce airway pressure due to turbulence and blockage in a typical asthma patient. This low-density gas mix can be used for all types of patients above 3 kg. It is especially well suited to reduce the work of breathing (WoB) of patients with obstructed airways, such as those with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).[5]

Servo-u MR screen

Safe, reliable and easy to use

When switching gas from air and O2 to Heliox and back, volume and CO2 monitoring as well as flow delivery are adjusted automatically by the ventilator’s Automatic Gas Identification. Heliox delivery is confirmed by the presence of the “HeO2” symbol on the screen. O2 concentration is easily adjusted between 21% – 100% and information texts facilitate Heliox administration in every mode.

Same experience, same settings

Servo-u MR is an effective complement to other ventilators in the Servo family. The common interface saves training time and eases patient transitions.

Servo-u and Servo-u MR also shares ventilation performance. This means that set and measured values are the same on both ventilators, making the transition of settings less complicated.

Built around your needs

Naturally, the machine itself is just one part of the equation. Our well-developed clinical and support organization backed the first Servo MR Conditional Ventilator more than 25 years ago and has been part of product development ever since.

three ventilation consumables

High quality consumables

We offer an extensive range of readily available consumables designed for the highest possible patient safety and ease of use – all to help secure your everyday operations.

Smart fleet management

The Servo family of ventilators share the design, many components and come with the same easy-access service structure and interface.

Connected to your data

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

Maximum uptime

Optimizing your equipment's services is often an untapped opportunity. Our Getinge Care service offering will ensure that your equipment always performs at peak levels allowing you to focus on what’s important - saving lives.
