Automatic Gas Control (AGC)
Safe and easy low-flow anesthesia
Automatic Gas Control (AGC) makes low-flow anesthesia delivery safe. 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.     
A unique innovation available for all our Flow Family anesthesia machines.
Safety, cost-effectiveness and convenience
What Automatic Gas Control does
When patients are at their most vulnerable, Automatic Gas Control (AGC) gives you visibility, control and precision to provide low- and minimal-flow anesthesia.
Safe, cost-effective and convenient, AGC is engineered to improve forecasting and control of anesthetic agents during the induction and emergence of anesthesia.
Automatic Gas Control with Flow-i
FIO2 Target Control
No manual adjustments
Free up time for you patients
Automatic Gas Control (AGC) facilitates the control of oxygen delivery in all anesthesia situations by a single FIO2 target setting. This FIO2 target setting has priority and is unaffected by anesthetic agent speed selection, reducing the risk of hypoxia.
It lets you adapt administration of agent to the patient’s status or surgical incision time, and reduces the risk of under- or overdosing.
AGC also features a unique EtAA speed control and prediction tool displayed in real time, which allows clinicians to determine time to end-tidal target, thus allowing more efficient gas delivery.
Reduce your hospital's environmental footprint
Customer voices on AGC for low-flow anesthesia
"AGC was an absolutely amazing experience, with no comparison to it."
Professor Sanuki, Hiroshima University Hospital Japan, shares his impressions.
“AGC buys us time to care for the patient, as well as time to document the patient recordings.”
Staff share their impressions after AGC was installed on 60 of their Flow-i anesthesia machines.
