Reduce anesthetic agent


58% reduction with Automatic Gas Control

A study shows that the unique Automatic Gas Control (AGC) in Flow-i anesthesia machine, lowers sevoflurane wastage by up to 58%;
a sustainable and economic approach without compromising patient safety. [6]

Low flow – low impact

With low-flow anesthesia, a lower amount of anesthetic agent is released into the environment, reducing the impact of fluorocarbons and nitrous oxide on the ozone layer, thus reducing the overall greenhouse gas emissions.


The products, availability of the Flow Family anesthesia systems and SW version may be pending regulatory approvals to be marketed in your country.

Our unique anesthesia technology makes the difference

AGC Anesthesia Flow

Automatic Gas Control (AGC)

Safe and easy low-flow anesthesia

Automatic Gas Control (AGC) makes low-flow anesthesia delivery safe. Automation eliminates the need of continuous manual adjustments: 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. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

o2guard anesthesia flow


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. [7]

Mac brain anesthesia flow

MAC Brain

Informed anesthetic dosing

To facilitate decision-making when planning and dosing anasthesia agents, we created MAC Brain. Using mathematical models and data-driven algorithms, MAC Brain visualizes the difference in agent effect in the lungs and the brain - actings as a decision-support framework to help guide anesthetic dosing.[8]

Lung recruitment flow anesthesia

Lung recruitment

Gentle steps against atelectasis

Our lung recruitment maneuvers have become the tool of choice to counter
atelectasis, to improve oxygenation and help prevent postoperative complications. [9] [10]

Ventilation anesthesia flow

Ventilation performance

Offering ICU-grade ventilation

Innovative Flow Core Technology is designed to promote efficient agent usage, providing the power and precision to ventilate even challenging patients. [11] [12]

User-friendly anesthesia machines in the OR

The intuitive 15” rotatable and tiltable touchscreen is straightforward to understand and use, and lets you control everything from one place saving time. The Flow-i is easy to move, position and configure and it can be placed anywhere around the OR table, ensuring the screen is in reach. With flexible mounting options for both monitors and accessories, you can truly personalize your workstation. [13]

Flow-i is so easy to use, training new staff and external consultants is made much easier… [13]
