Personalization breath by breath

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. [1]

Mac brain anesthesia flow

Informed anesthetic dosing

In anesthesia, there is a difference in agent concentration levels in the lungs and in the target organ, the brain. To facilitate decision-making when planning and dosing anesthesia agents, we have created MAC Brain. [2]

Lung recruitment flow anesthesia

Gentle steps against atelectasis

Lung recruitment maneuvers have become the tool of choice to counter
atelectasis, to improve oxygenation and help prevent postoperative complications. [3] [4]

Ventilation anesthesia flow

ICU-grade ventilation

Innovative Flow Core Technology is designed to promote efficient agent usage, providing the power and precision to ventilate even challenging patients. [5] [6]
