Servo-u Ventilator

The intuitive ICU ventilator that inspires confidence and provides multiple options for protective ventilation. A solid foundation for the future.

"It is really easy to find the settings of what you want to do and it is clearly displayed – that is an advantage."

- Intensive care physician, Canada

"For me, this is a secure investment – a solid product to build on, based on a solid foundation."

- Intensive care physician and researcher, Brazil


Servo-u® is the next step forward in making protective ventilation more accessible, understandable and easy to implement.

It is designed to enhance user confidence in tailoring treatments to the individual patient condition. Which means more patients in all phases of ventilation – controlled, supported, non-invasive and during spontaneous breathing trials – can benefit from advanced lung protective strategies.

Servo-u offers:
  • Tools to support protective ventilation strategies
  • Context-based guidance, therapeutic workflows and intuitive user interaction for all functions
  • Upgradeable platform to meet future needs

Servo Compass

Servo Compass on Servo-u and Servo-n target-guided ventilation

The ventilator is an indispensable tool in the ICU area. Used wisely it may help reduce the risks of Ventilator Induced Lung Injury (VILI).

Getinge Compass

Servo Compass visualizes the volume and pressure of each breath in relation to set targets.

Servo Compass® allows clinicians to visually assess patients at a glance for low tidal volumes and peak pressures, alerting clinicians to changing conditions and allowing them to intervene with appropriate therapy. Servo Compass® joins NAVA® and Edi monitoring as part of the Servo portfolio focusing on lung protection and activation of the diaphragm. The goal of which is to enable clinicians to promote lung protective ventilation and wean patients from the ventilator.

How to detect deviations from ventilation targets with Servo Compass

Patient on target

Volume and pressure OK

Increased risk for volutrauma

Too high volume

Increased risk for atelectotrauma

Too low volume

Increased risk for barotrauma

Too high pressure

Protective ventilation

Multiple options for protective ventilation

Servo-u is the next step forward in making protective ventilation more accessible, understandable and easy to implement. It supports your ability to identify the patient's needs and to act accordingly. It makes clinically documented values, such as VT/PBW and the Edi respiratory vital sign, available on screen and easily trended.

Automatic calculation of VT/PBW

The significance of protective tidal volumes is well documented.1,2,3 SERVO-U automatically calculates tidal volume per kilogram of predicted body weight (VT/PBW), a value which is continuously measured and trended, supporting adjustment of ventilation parameters.

Decision support with the help of Edi

The Edi respiratory vital sign (electrical activity of the diaphragm), displayed on screen, helps clinicians track spontaneous breathing efforts. It also supports sedation management in all ventilation modes as well as in standby. This accurate onscreen information allows appropriate and timely response to changing breathing conditions.4,5

Ventilation support synchronized by the patient's brain

Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory Assist (NAVA®) is the ventilation mode that utilizes the Edi signal to provide ventilation support synchronized by the patient’s brain. The NAVA therapeutic workflow provides a resource for the clinician during all stages of NAVA therapy. Support tools are available for: Edi catheter selection, calculation of the insertion length, catheter positioning, and NAVA preview to facilitate adjustment of NAVA mode settings.

NEW Built-in High Flow therapy

High Flow therapy reduces the patient’s work of breathing by delivering a gas flow volume to meet or exceed the patient’s inspiratory flow rate, supporting the patient’s own efforts and minimizing limitations.[6] This therapy involves a set flow that drives the accurate set level of heated and humidified oxygen, improving patient comfort and tolerance.[7] The integrated nebulization can be used during High Flow therapy.

Inspiring confidence at bedside

The Servo-u ventilator is designed to support tailoring of treatments to the individual patient condition every step of the way. The menu takes you directly to what you need, while the interface provides a clear visual of what you are doing. On-screen, context-based guidance tools like Safety Scale®, tutorials, and prompts help you make informed decisions.

Informed decisions at bedside

Guidance and other context-based information help you understand how the changes you make affect the patient’s breath. The Safety Scale® tool allows for quick changes while providing clear feedback that helps you avoid unusual ranges for the category of patient that is being treated.

On screen tutorials

Easy to find, on-screen tutorials are available to support you when applying settings and selecting ventilation modes.

Tools to help you evaluate the patient´s condition

Servo-u gives you the opportunity to review patient information for research and education. You can access 72 hours of trend data or use the built-in recording feature to capture what just happened, as well as 15 seconds before and after recording was enabled.

Optimized alarm management

The alarm management system includes short texts that help you respond to alarms. Highlights let you know what values are affected and shortcuts take you directly to what needs change. Managing alarms in a Servo® ventilator has never been easier.

Securing your investment for the future

Purchasing a ventilator is a significant investment, and you want to be confident with your choice. That is why Servo-u is also designed to grow with you.  You can configure according to your current needs, and upgrade cost-effectively when those needs change, or when new features become available.

Performance from day one with scalable services

Getinge Care Services add value from day one and ensure that your system operates at peak performance throughout its lifecycle, so that your staff can take advantage of all its features. Furthermore, genuine Getinge consumables help guarantee performance.

Ergonomic design provides flexibility

The ergonomic design means the system can be placed to the left or right of the bed. It can also be mounted on a ceiling boom, trolley, or on the bed itself.

Interchangeable product modules

Interchangeable hardware modules and components provide the flexibility to be used on your entire Servo ventilator fleet as needed.

Part of a groundbreaking ventilator family

Servo ventilators have a history of being groundbreaking. Servo-u is no different. Physicians, respiratory therapists, nurses, and biomed technicians from all over the world helped us build it. We believe that it will forever change the way you look at respiratory life support devices.
