ICU ventilation performance and anesthesia delivery - all in one

When treating high-risk patients with pulmonary disease or compromised pulmonary function, you need an anesthesia machine with superior ventilation performance. Based on our heritage and the core technology of the Servo ventilator platform, the Flow anesthesia family is designed to handle these common ventilatory challenges.

Easy steps to lung recruitment in the OR

Atelectasis affects over 90% of patients undergoing surgery, regardless of gender, age, health condition or length of surgery, showing the importance of protecting patients’ lungs.[1]

Lung recruitment maneuvers have become the tool of choice to counter atelectasis. Still, many clinicians find it somewhat complicated and time-consuming to apply lung protective strategies - but it doesn't have to be.

Concerned about the risks of low-flow anesthesia? We are too.

That is why we developed Automatic Gas Control (AGC), facilitating safe low- and minimal-flow anesthesia.

Unique O₂Guard helps reduce risk for hypoxia

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

Customer voices on Automatic Gas Control
for low-flow anesthesia

"42% volatile agent savings with AGC."

Learn how Belfast hospital realized they could substantially reduce their agent consumption with AGC.

"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.

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. 

Reduce the cost and stress of ownership

UK hospital estimated a 33% cost savings on agent usage with Flow-i

After changing their anesthesia machine fleet to Flow-i, a UK hospital conducted a six-month retrospective comparison of anesthetic agent usage using Flow-i versus the old technology. Flow-i was estimated to result in a 33% cost savings in agent consumption.
