Flow-i Anesthesia Machine
Flow-i Anesthesia Machine
Advanced anesthesia for all procedures, from neonates to the morbidly obese.
The Flow-i combines superior ventilation performance with smart decision support tools in an easy to use workstation. The Flow-i lets you treat even your most challenging patients with safe, lung-protective and cost-efficient ventilation and anesthetic care.
Advanced ICU ventilator performance and anesthesia delivery together in one user-friendly unit.
- The Flow Core Technology for excellent ventilation performance
Modular and upgradeable system
Intuitive touch screen, tiltable and rotatable
Low-flow anesthesia with a FGF (Fresh Gas Flow) limit of 0.3 l/min, and with visual guidance
- Active hypoxic guard, the O2Guard, for added safety
Easy maintenance and training
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.
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 95%.

Easy to use and smart by design
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.
“Flow-i is so easy to use, training new staff and external consultants is made much easier…”
Clinician during testing
Reduce the risk
of hypoxia with O₂Guard
Unlike hypoxic guards in conventional anesthesia machines, O₂Guard actively intervenes if the inspired oxygen concentration drops below 21%, reducing the risk of hypoxic mixtures.
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.
The Flow-i C20 provides you with the extra storage you need. Choose between two or three drawers.
Flow-i C30 is unique in its height adjustability. Combined with a vast mounting and positioning flexibility you can tailor the machine to suite your working position.
Flow-i C40 is ceiling mounted, offering a two-part circulating radius, which results in a wide spatial range for the unit. The C40 facilitates cleaning and thus contributes to infection control.
Simplified cleaning and maintenance
When cleaning the Flow-i, 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.
