Flow-c Anesthesia Machine

Our compact anesthesia model

Flow-c is the compact, easy-to-use anesthesia machine enabling safe and cost-efficient treatment. The compact design is an advantage in a crowded operating room with a busy schedule.

Dynamic Anesthesia Delivery when Every. Breath. Counts. 

 

Compact efficiency in the busy OR

Despite its small size, Flow-c has Flow Family advantages such as ventilation performance to ICU standards, precision agent dosing, active hypoxia prevention technologies, an intuitive user interface, and several mounting possibilities.

  • Safe and cost-effective treatment
  • Compact, with a large drawer
  • Smart cable and hose management

Our unique anesthesia technology makes the difference

Active hypoxia prevention

Our O2Guard is the world’s only system for active hypoxia prevention. Should the inspired oxygen level drop below 21%, the O2Guard automatically overrules the settings and increases the flow of oxygen. The risk of hypoxia is minimized. [1] [2]

Better anesthetic agent dosing

For more precise control of depth of anesthesia, we created MAC Brain. A unique tool that visualizes the difference in agent concentration between the lungs and the target organ, the brain. The reliability of the data puts you in control, letting you plan and deliver more efficient dosing of agents with safety and ease. [3] [4] [5]

User-friendly workstation in the OR

Large drawer

With slots for spare vaporizers and an optional lockable compartment.

Cable management

Hoses and cables are neatly routed and covered by specially designed panels, contributing to improved hygiene and safety.

215 cm rails for flexible mounting

Despite its compact size, Flow-c has 215 cm multipurpose rails! Mount monitors, tables and accessories where it best suits you.
