Maquet launches SERVO-air at Africa Health: For better access to learning, using and owning quality ventilation
Developed in cooperation with clinics on four continents: new wall gas independent ICU and sub-acute care ventilator offers liberating performance to hospitals confronted with unstable air supply from wall outlets.
Solna, Sweden, 05.05.2015 - Maquet Critical Care today announced their first turbine ventilator to be launched at the healthcare exhibition Africa Health, Johannesburg, from May 5 to 7, 2015. This type of ventilator will be used at hospitals in parts of the world that do not always have access to air from wall outlets. Throughout the entire development project Maquet worked together with physicians and nurses from the regions where the product was expected to be used, for example, India, South Africa, Japan and the USA, to ensure a great user experience.
“Guided by the principle that although ventilation can be complicated, the ventilator doesn’t have to be, we now added a wall gas independent ventilator to the SERVO family. From the ICU to intermediate care, for invasive and non-invasive ventilation, SERVO-air will be appreciated by clinicians that value easy-to-learn and -use quality ventilation. This can help limit errors, save time, and even contribute to better outcomes“, said Dr. Jens Viebke, President, Maquet Critical Care AB.
Built-in features like context-based guidance, on-screen information and dynamic images can guide the users in applying advanced ventilation every day.
The turbine offers a high flow and pressure capacity, which is crucial to provide comfortable ventilation to sick and hard to ventilate lungs. At the same time, it is extremely quiet, which helps keeping noise levels down.
Thanks to the battery powered turbine and hot-swappable batteries, SERVO-air is set to follow the patient easily throughout the hospitals. SERVO-air is also a strong choice for the growing trend towards non-invasive ventilation (NIV), reducing the need for a separate dedicated NIV ventilator.
“With the launch of SERVO-U one and a half years ago, we believe we set the standard in user-friendliness introducing the first ICU ventilator that features an all-touch-screen-based user interface. SERVO-air is a strong option to work alongside our ventilators that offer the most advanced lung-protective options, such as SERVO-U”, suggested Dr. Jens Viebke.
Maquet has been developing market-leading ventilators for more than 40 years. Today the SERVO family installed base exceeds 140 000 units worldwide.
Commercialization of this product currently excludes the United States.
The product SERVO-air may be pending regulatory approvals to be marketed in your country.
