Servo-u Ventilator

The intuitive ICU ventilator that inspires confidence and provides multiple options for protective ventilation. A solid foundation for the future.

"It is really easy to find the settings of what you want to do and it is clearly displayed – that is an advantage."

- Intensive care physician, Canada

"For me, this is a secure investment – a solid product to build on, based on a solid foundation."

- Intensive care physician and researcher, Brazil


Servo-u® is the next step forward in making protective ventilation more accessible, understandable and easy to implement.

It is designed to enhance user confidence in tailoring treatments to the individual patient condition. Which means more patients in all phases of ventilation – controlled, supported, non-invasive and during spontaneous breathing trials – can benefit from advanced lung protective strategies.

Servo-u offers:
  • Tools to support protective ventilation strategies
  • Context-based guidance, therapeutic workflows and intuitive user interaction for all functions
  • Upgradeable platform to meet future needs

Servo Compass on Servo-u and Servo-n target-guided ventilation

The ventilator is an indispensable tool in the ICU area. Used wisely it may help reduce the risks of Ventilator Induced Lung Injury (VILI).

Getinge Compass

Servo Compass visualizes the volume and pressure of each breath in relation to set targets.

Servo Compass® allows clinicians to visually assess patients at a glance for low tidal volumes and peak pressures, alerting clinicians to changing conditions and allowing them to intervene with appropriate therapy. Servo Compass® joins NAVA® and Edi monitoring as part of the Servo portfolio focusing on lung protection and activation of the diaphragm. The goal of which is to enable clinicians to promote lung protective ventilation and wean patients from the ventilator.
