Flow-i Anaesthesia Machine

Advanced anaesthesia for all procedures, from neonates to the morbidly obese.

The Flow-i combines superior ventilation performance with smart decision support tools in an easy to use workstation. The Flow-i lets you treat even your most challenging patients with safe, lung-protective and cost-efficient ventilation and anaesthetic care.  


When developing the Flow-i, we have built on our insight and expertise as a world-leading manufacturer of Servo ventilators, enabling us to develop unique, innovative technology. Technology that combines high power with high sensitivity and accuracy to gently optimize gas exchange in the lungs and minimize the risk of complications. Flow-i is powerful and reliable, and the same time easy to use.

Next-generation technology at the core

Ventilation performance is not only about modes, but most importantly to ensure the power and precision to ventilate all patient categories. At the heart of the Flow-i you'll find the innovative Flow Core Technology providing superior ventilation performance – power when you need it, yet gentle on the lungs. [1]

  • Proven ICU Servo gas modules
    • delivering up to 200 l/min inspiratory flow, and adjusting pressure and flow several times within every breath, depending on patient needs.
  • Unique and rigid Volume Reflector rebreathing system
    • facilitating up to 98% rebreathing. The Volume Reflector is never empty in order to provide uninterrupted ventilation, and will effectively compensate leakages. It is oxygen-driven thus minimizing the risk for hypoxic mixtures.
  • Electronic injection vaporizers
    • for more precise delivery of agents.

Easy to use and smart by design

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 personalise your workstation. 

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

Safe and efficient low-flow anaesthesia with AGC

Automatic Gas Control (AGC) is designed to reach the target end-tidal anaesthetic agent you set, at the speed desired. AGC greatly reduces agent usage and the need for manual adjustments providing cost-efficient low-flow anesthesia.

Battle atelectasis with stepwise lung recruitment

Stepwise and automated lung recruitment with Flow-i aims to gently open the alveoli. Breath-by-breath compliance, trending the effect of the manoeuvre can be monitored in real-time.

Reduce the risk of hypoxia with O2Guard

Unlike hypoxic guards in conventional anaesthesia machines, O₂Guard actively intervenes if the inspired oxygen concentration drops below 21%, reducing the risk of hypoxic mixtures.
