Getinge’s mechanical ventilator, Servo-u, is now launched in the updated version 4.0, with added automatic lung recruitment and transpulmonary pressure monitoring functions. This groundbreaking solution was made possible thanks to cooperation with over 100 clinicians and researchers worldwide, with the aim to make complex procedures easier for clinicians and safer for patients. Servo-u 4.0 will be introduced at the 39th International Symposium on Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine in Brussels.
