Flow-i Anesthesia Machine

Our innovative model for low-flow anesthesia delivery

Flow-i is a highly advanced anesthesia machine offering superior ventilation performance, decision support features, a wider range of settings of flows and pressures, and the innovative AGC option for safe and easy low-flow anesthesia. Flow-i provides safe, personalized and cost-efficient care, also for the most challenging patients. Available in three versions, it is a dynamic solution, including a height-adjustable model, and a pendant model suspended from the ceiling. 

Dynamic Anesthesia Delivery - Every. Breath. Counts.



Our unique anesthesia technology makes the difference

Safe and easy low-flow anesthesia with Automatic Gas Control (AGC)

Automatic Gas Control (AGC) makes low-flow anesthesia delivery safe. It is an option uniquely available with Flow-i machines. Automation eliminates the need of continuous manual adjustments: with simple pre-settings, specifying the targeted inspired oxygen, end-tidal anesthetic agent levels and required speed, AGC solves the rest. Our innovation offers high precision combined with improved comfort and increased safety. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

O2Guard - active hypoxia prevention

O₂Guard - 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. The risk of hypoxia is minimized. [7] [8]

MAC Brain

MAC Brain - better anesthetic agent dosing

For more precise control of depth of anesthesia, we created MAC Brain. A unique tool that visualizes the difference in agent concentration between the lungs and the target organ, the brain. The reliability of the data puts you in control, letting you plan and deliver more efficient dosing of agents with safety and ease. [8] [9] [10]

Lung recruitment maneuvers

Lung recruitment - gentle steps against atelectasis

Our lung recruitment maneuvers have become the tool of choice to counter
atelectasis, to improve oxygenation and help prevent postoperative complications. What once was considered complex and time consuming is now seamlessly integrated into your workflow. [11] [12]

ICU ventilation performance and anesthesia delivery

Ventilation performance to ICU standards

Innovative Flow Core Technology is designed to promote efficient agent usage, providing the power and precision to ventilate even the most challenging patients. This is due to the combination of our Volume Reflector with its smart re-breathing system and our proven Servo gas modules, adjusting pressure and flow constantly within every breath. [13] [14] [15] 

Reduce anesthetic agent

Getinge Anesthesia for a sustainable OR

MAC Brain and AGC are our innovations for control and reduction of anesthestic agent consumption. MAC Brain lets you control the depth of anesthesia, with less risk of overdosing. AGC makes low-flow anesthesia safer and easier – while reducing the use of agent.

Reducing the environmental footprint with Automatic Gas Control

Low flow – low impact

With low-flow anesthesia, a lower amount of anesthetic agent is released into the environment, reducing the impact of fluorocarbons and nitrous oxide on the ozone layer, thus reducing the overall greenhouse gas emissions.

42% volatile agent reduction with AGC

"This enables a significant cost saving in addition to several clinical benefits."

- Johan Strange, Belfast City Hospital

User-friendly anesthesia machines in the OR

Developed together with clinicians, Flow Family anesthesia machines are designed to facilitate a great scope for personalization and patient safety. With smart design and a high level of automation, the Flow Family brings smooth workflows to a stressful OR situation, making the clinician confident, responsive and proactive. The ergonomics, Connected Services, and simplified routines and settings made for higher efficiency, a better work environment and improved care outcomes.

Ease of use for a streamlined workflow

"Flow-i is so easy to use, training new staff and external consultants is made much easier…"

The intuitive 15” rotatable and tiltable touchscreen is straightforward to understand and use, and lets you control everything from one place saving time. The Flow-i is easy to move, position and configure and it can be placed anywhere around the OR table, ensuring the screen is in reach. With flexible mounting options for both monitors and accessories, you can truly personalize your workstation. [16]

Extra storage

Flow-i C20 provides you with the extra storage you need. Choose between two or three drawers. 

Flow-i anesthesia machine height adjustable

Ergonomic choice

Flow-i C30 is unique in its height adjustability. Combined with a vast mounting and positioning flexibility you can tailor the machine to suite your working position.

Flow-i ceiling mounted anesthesia machine

Pendant version

Flow-i C40 is ceiling mounted, offering a two-part circulating radius, which results in a wide spatial range for the unit. The C40 facilitates cleaning and thus contributes to infection control.
