Gentle steps against atelectasis
- with automatic and stepwise lung recruitment
Having a choice gives you flexibility with each patient
With Flow-i, you can choose the stepwise automatic or the manual recruitment maneuver. Whichever you choose, the lung recruitment function is designed with safety and ease-of-use in mind.
Unique O₂Guard hypoxic guard helps reduce risk of hypoxia
O2Guard is an active hypoxic guard system that automatically increases the fresh gas and oxygen if measured FIO2 is lower than 21%. It provides added peace of mind in reducing the risk of hypoxia.
The unique O2Guard is a standard feature on all our anesthesia machines.
Watch how the O2Guard works
The video explains why there´s always a risk for hypoxia during low-flow anesthesia due to rebreathing, and how O2Guard works. Whereas conventional hypoxic guards only trigger an alarm, the O2Guard actively intervenes.
3-step safety with O₂Guard
In three steps, the O2Guard automatically increases the fresh gas and O2 settings to ensure that hypoxic mixtures can never be delivered to the patient. If the inspired O2 level still does not increase, the system will be flushed with 100% O2.
