Flow-c Anesthesia Machine

Smidigare arbetsflöde för hektiska operationssalar

Flow-c är en kompakt anestesimaskin där varje detalj har utformats för att underlätta det dagliga arbetet och möjliggöra kostnadseffektiv och säker behandling för patienterna.


Getinge Flow-c

A compact anesthesia machine
for a streamlined workflow

  • Compact to fit in any OR space, yet with flexible mounting possibilities
  • Intuitive touch screen, tiltable and rotatable
  • Convenient details to ease the daily work, e.g clever cable management without clutter
  • The Flow core technology for excellent ventilation performance
  • Low flow anesthesia with a FGF (Fresh Gas Flow) limit of 0.1 l/min, and with visual guidance
  • Active hypoxic guard, the O2Guard, for added safety
  • Easy maintenance and training

Designed with you – to get work flowing

Every detail of the Flow-c has been thoughtfully designed in collaboration with clinicians to ease your daily work in the fast-paced OR.

Intuitive control panel

The flexible and intuitive touch screen gives you one point of control for all functions.

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.

Cable management without clutter

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

Getinge Flow-c hooks

Snap on hooks

For convenient placement of tubes, manual breathing bags, suction tips and other accessories.

Getinge Flow-c shelf

Convenient USB and light

USB ports for data transfer and power supply are easily accessible. Three step dimmable LED lights up the workspace.

Large drawer

With slots for spare vaporizers and an optional lockable compartment.

Flow-c Anesthesia Machine

Everyday work
that simply flows


Reduce the risk
of hypoxia with O₂Guard

Low-flow anesthesia the safest[1] way

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

Flow Volume Reflector Indicator

Visual guidance
when lowering the flows

The VRI (Volume Reflector Indicator) is a useful visual guide that enables
you to optimize the rebreathing fraction and thus save anesthetic agent.

This tool makes it simple to set the optimal Fresh Gas Flow (FGF) and minute volume ratio. Agent consumption can easily be monitored via the interface.

MAC Brain

MAC Brain

Visualizing agent concentration in target organ

Due to pharmacokinetics there is a time delay in agent concentrations between the lungs and the target organ, the brain. The unique MAC Brain tool visualizes the difference to support better dosing and planning of agent delivery.

Ventilation performance

Next-generation technology at the core

The Flow family was created by the engineers behind the world-class Servo ventilator platform. The innovative technology at the heart of the Flow-e ensures superior ventilation performance with significantly reduced anesthetic agent usage. [2][3]

Ensuring accurate and precise gas delivery

Our patented Volume Reflector is a smart rebreathing system. In combination with Servo gas modules, it enables accurate tidal volumes down to 5 ml, providing better ventilation performance compared to bag-in-bottle, turbine and piston-operated systems.[2]

The rigid Volume Reflector is never empty to ensure uninterrupted ventilation, and compensates effectively for leakage.

To minimize the risk of hypoxic mixtures the Volume Reflector is oxygen driven. It has a small system volume for fast wash-in and wash-out and a rebreathing fraction of 98%.

Getinge Flow-c gas modules

Enabling ICU-quality ventilation

The proven Servo gas modules deliver up to 200 l/min inspiratory flow and are capable of adjusting pressure and flow several times within every breath, according to each patient’s needs.

Fast and precise delivery of anesthetic agents

Electronic injection technology enables precise delivery of agents, primarily during the inspiratory phase, with minimal waste.

The lightweight and maintenance-free vaporizers can be refilled and exchanged while the machine is running, and do not require annual calibration.

Only 2.7 liters

A small system volume (2.7 l) allows fast wash-in and wash-out which saves time and agent consumption.

Secure investment

Optimizing uptime and efficiency

We have designed every detail to minimize the overall cost of ownership. From innovations that reduce consumption of anesthetic agents to extensive training programs. With shared components and a common user-friendly interface, we make it easy to manage a fleet with many different Flow models.

Öka drifttiden med uppkopplade anestesimaskiner

Vår digitala tjänst Getinge Online förbinder människor, produkter och idéer, vilket gör det möjligt för både serviceteam och kliniker att förbättra effektiviteten. Getinge Online ger direkt tillgång till utrustningsdata som hjälper dig, ditt team och sjukhuset  att maximera drifttiden. Informationen hjälper dig också att minska användningen av anestesimedel och minska miljöpåverkan.

Simplified cleaning and maintenance

When cleaning the Flow Anesthesia Machine only 7 parts need to be removed, saving costs and supporting infection control.

Preventive maintenance is optimized to reduce complexity with few and easily accessible parts only changed every two years.

Getinge Care: protecting your investment

Optimizing equipment services is an excellent way to boost productivity and reduce costs. A Getinge Care service plan ensures your equipment always performs to its full potential, allowing you to focus on saving lives.
