Designed with you for personalized anesthesia delivery
Every detail of the Flow-e has been designed in collaboration with clinicians, ensuring personalized care with high efficiency.
Intuitive control panel
The intuitive touchscreen, with quick access presets, gives you one point of control for all functions.
9 feet of rails for flexible mounting
An unmatched length of stepless rails (110"/278cm) enables you to add all the monitors and accessories you need.
Smart clips, hooks and arms
For convenient placement of suction device, manual breathing bag and other accessories.
Convenient USB and light
A useful shelf gives easy access to the USB ports. The workspace is lit by a dimmable LED lamp.
Reduce the risk
of hypoxia with O₂Guard
Low-flow anesthesia the safest way
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.
when lowering the flows
The VRI (Volume Reflector Indicator) is a useful visual guide that enables you to optimize the rebreathing fraction and thus save anesthetic agent.
This tool makes it simple to set the optimal Fresh Gas Flow (FGF) and minute volume ratio. Agent consumption can easily be monitored via the interface.
Battle atelectasis with stepwise lung recruitment
Stepwise and automated lung recruitment aims to gently open the alveoli. Breath-by-breath compliance, trending the effect of the maneuver can be monitored in real time.
Visualizing agent concentration in target organ
Due to pharmacokinetics there is a time delay in agent concentrations between the lungs and the target organ, the brain. The unique MAC Brain tool visualizes the difference to support better dosing and planning of agent delivery.
Ensuring accurate and precise gas delivery
Our patented Volume Reflector is a smart rebreathing system. In combination with Servo gas modules, it enables accurate tidal volumes down to 5 ml, providing better ventilation performance compared to bag-in-bottle, turbine and piston-operated systems.
The rigid Volume Reflector is never empty to ensure uninterrupted ventilation, and compensates effectively for leakage.
To minimize the risk of hypoxic mixtures the Volume Reflector is oxygen driven. It has a small system volume for fast wash-in and wash-out and a rebreathing fraction of 98%.
Fast and precise delivery of anesthetic agents
Electronic injection technology enables precise delivery of agents, primarily during the inspiratory phase, with minimal waste.
The lightweight and maintenance-free vaporizers can be refilled and exchanged while the machine is running, and do not require annual calibration.
Simplified cleaning and maintenance
When cleaning the Flow Anesthesia Machine only 7 parts need to be removed, saving costs and supporting infection control.
Preventive maintenance is optimized to reduce complexity with few and easily accessible parts only changed every two years.

Flow-i Anesthesia Machine
Representing the latest standard in anesthesia, Flow-i enables clinicians to continuously adapt and improve anesthesia care to match the situation at hand while maintaining stable respiratory conditions.
Flow-c is the compact, easy-to-use dynamic workstation, enabling cost-efficient treatment. The compact design is an advantage in a crowded OR with a busy schedule. Despite its small size, it has Flow Family advantages such as high-performance ventilation, precision agent dosing, hypoxia prevention technologies, an intuitive user interface, and several mounting options.
