Getinge expands the ICU offering with the new ventilator Servo-c
Today, Getinge launches its new Servo-c mechanical ventilator targeting selected markets, offering lung-protective therapeutic tools to treat both pediatric and adult patients. Based on decades of knowledge and with all essential functionalities needed, Servo-c is intended to make health care accessible and affordable for more hospitals around the world.
The cost of health care is increasing and along with it the heightened importance for hospitals to invest in safe, high-quality and sustainable solutions. Providing patients with just the right level of respiratory support can be complex, and Getinge’s new ventilator Servo-c, coming from more than 50 years of Servo performance, is designed to simplify this.
“Lung-protection challenges come in many shapes and sizes. That is why Servo-c is designed for safe, easy and efficient use that enable personalized respiratory treatments. With the essential functionalities provided, it is ideal for hospitals in the targeted markets looking for a high acuity ventilator at an affordable price point,” says Elin Frostehav, President Acute Care Therapies at Getinge.
Servo-c utilizes modular component parts that help enable a smart fleet management to ensure uptime and drive down costs without the need of propriatory disposables. Features like CO2 monitoring and Servo Compass® are offered to help visualize volume and pressure targets, as well as Open Lung Tool trends for recruitment that helps assess lung mechanics and gas exchange breath by breath, in real time and retrospectively.
“Minimizing interruptions along a patient’s journey towards spontaneous breathing is always a priority in the intensive care unit (ICU). From invasive to non-invasive ventilation and High Flow therapy to weaning, you want a smooth workflow to reach the best outcomes. Servo-c comes with just that,” explains Miray Kärnekull, Medical Affairs Director at Getinge.
“Designing Servo-c was as much about delivering lasting quality as it was about doing more with less. Like using just a few, easy-to-clean and interchangeable parts and offering preventive service agreements that maximize investments. Ultimately, our aim is to help keep ICUs up and running in all parts of the world, at all times, and support health care staff so that they can focus fully and confidently on caring for their patients.”
