Servo-air Ventilator

Personalized ventilation meets high mobility

Like all Servo ventilators, Servo-air is a critical-care device that comes with unique tools for personalizing lung protection and weaning. An added benefit is that Servo-air is a turbine-driven ventilator with powerful battery backup, making it easy to move around the hospital without requiring wall gas or power outlets. Whether needed for pediatrics or adults, invasive or non-invasive therapy, Servo-air frees you up to perform.

Intuitive. Powerful. Customizable.

For more than 50 years, Servo ventilators have been refined and perfected with tools for personalizing your treatments. The Servo-air utilizes the same tools and technology as the rest of the Servo family. 

Servo-air studio product hand touching screen

Intuitive means easy to use

Easy to learn, use and get started with, Servo-air® comes with hardware and software features that instinctively meet your needs. On-screen context-based instructions, with clear images and text, guide you through preparation, setup, running and weaning. Embedded therapeutic workflows also enable safe operation and adherance to hospital protocols. All to make your life easier.

Servo-air studio product powerful turbine

Powerful means reliable, non-stop performance

Servo-air® moves with you, avoiding any interruptions to change ventilators, systems, batteries or air cylinders. The powerful turbine is validated to last 50,000 hours, or 10 years. Backup power is provided by up to two hot-swappable batteries. Use it for invasive or non-invasive ventilation without changing breathing circuits. And our High Flow therapy option avoids the need for a stand-alone system.


Customizable means supporting personalized ventilation

Every patient comes with unique challenges. And every clinician has their own working preferences. Servo-air® is designed with both in mind. Not only does it comes with a tiltable, fold-down screen and other flexible features, it lets you tailor your patient’s treatment. Personalization tools such as Automode®, Servo Compass® and High Flow therapy ensure smooth transitions and treatments adapted to individual needs.

Mobility gives added flexibility

Robust yet versatile, Servo-air® is designed to be moved around the hospital, providing ICU-level support for pediatrics or adults where you need it. The batteries are easy to exchange in transit, while the turbine ensures constant air flow. If needed, High Flow therapy can also be switched on and used together with our built-in Aerogen® nebulizer. In other words, a versatile solution for invasive or non-invasive care in the ICU, intermediate care or intra-hospital transit.

Cost-efficient critical care

This easy-to-use critical-care ventilator includes many of the personalization tools of our top-end Servos, with an eye to cost-efficiency. High-quality components ensure a long lifetime and low maintenance. Few parts require cleaning. Our expiratory cassettes are also interchangeable with our Servo-u ventilator. All in all, reliable performance, high uptime, potentially less training (due to on-screen instructions) and the reduced need for different ventilators, contribute to cost-effective ownership.

Getinge Servo Ventilator Interoperability

Simplifying service and usability

To reduce the lifecycle operational costs of your equipment, Servo-air shares many of the components, interfaces, patient cassettes and handy service structures of our Servo-u® ventilator. A similar look, feel and serviceability promotes great efficiency across the fleet. If you are already using a Servo, you will quickly recognize many of the settings. And of course, should any questions arise, our qualified service team is always on hand to support you.

Goal-directed ventilation

Goal-directed ventilation and smooth transitions give you the ability to personalize the ventilation therapy for each patient. The VT/PBW helps you set and monitor lung-protective ventilation for each patient, supporting more individualized care. Automode® switches between controlled and supported ventilation depending on patient effort, providing smoother patient transition to spontaneous breathing with less staff intervention.

Servo-air High-Flow therapy

High Flow therapy

The High Flow therapy in Servo-air® can be used in both invasive or non-invasive ventilation. When switching on this mode, our intuitive on-screen workflows guide the implementation to help secure continuous ventilation support. Our integrated Aerogen® nebulizer technology can also be used during High Flow therapy as well as in invasive and non-invasive ventilation.


Servo Compass®

Servo Compass® makes it easy to see when plateau/driving pressure or tidal volume per predicted body weight (VT/PBW) are off pre-defined target and intervention is needed. Staff are then provided with a notification that further adjustments are required. This enables you monitor and assess your lung-protective strategy with every breath.

Building on a legacy of ventilation performance

The entire Getinge Servo ventilator family is designed to optimize the interaction between patient and ventilator for better comfort and performance.
Servo-air® is no different.

Getinge Servo-air in the ICU

Non-invasive ventilation

Gentle non-invasive ventilation (NIV) reduces the need for patient sedation and a separate NIV ventilator. With a sensitive trigger and gentle flow, and due to the silent turbine technology, you can help keep your patients comfortably ventilated.

Invasive ventilation patient and doctor

Invasive ventilation

The combination of high-flow and high-pressure with a precise and accurate delivery allows you to ventilate adult and pediatric patients. With the availability of various modes, you have the possibility to adapt to any patient situation.


On-screen VT/PBW

The tidal volume per kilogram of predicted body weight is an important parameter which is known to affect patient survival. It is automatically calculated and trended, allowing you to set and monitor the correct tidal volume for each patient.

Servo-air automode for smooth transitions


Automode® is an interactive ventilation mode. It switches between controlled and supported ventilation depending on patient effort, providing a smoother transition to spontaneous breathing with less need for staff intervention.

Servo-air ready


On-screen instructions with images and text guide you throughout the pre-use check process. When passed, the ventilator is ready to use.
