Getinge Receives 510(k) Clearance for Upgrade to Software in Servo-u® and Servo-n® Ventilator Platform

New base software, enhanced usability, support of ARDSnet protocol compliant therapies, and new features.

Read more about the upgrade

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

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.

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.


Original Matters

It doesn’t matter how advanced the therapy support platform is if the interface used to deliver therapy to the patient is compromised. Choosing genuine Getinge consumables helps ensure that you can take full advantage of the Getinge Servo-u.

Getinge consumables:
  • are fully tested and approved
  • are made of top quality material and design
  • guarantee full capabilities and performance
  • minimize risk for unplanned downtime and ensures optimum performance throughout the system's lifecycle

Getinge has designed a full range of masks, breathing systems/circuits and patient specific interface options for the Servo ventilators. Each of these options is quality engineered to ensure ongoing access to the platforms’ key support features while promoting better patient comfort and safety.


Filters and humidifiers

The unique Servo Duo Guard filter is specially designed to manage nebulized medications. It can be used for 48 hours without exchange. It also helps to secure a healthy work-environment for your staff and at the same time protects the ventilator, helping ensure a long life time.

Servo humidifiers are optimized to combine high efficiency with low resistance and small volume. The Servo humidifiers come in versions with or without a bacterial/viral filter, humidifying and reducing contamination risk for patient and equipment. Getinge supplies both active and passive humidifiers.
