When Getinge employee Mateusz Mackowski and his wife had triplets the babies were born premature in week 34. In order to survive, two of them needed mechanical ventilation. For Mateusz, it was a huge relief to see that the hospital was using a Servo-n ventilator with NAVA technology, from his employer.
The smallest surviving baby boy believed to ever born has survived despite weighing only 258 grams at birth after 24 weeks and five days of gestation. Dr. Ryo Itoshima, one of the doctors behind this miraculous recovery, says the Getinge innovation Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory Assist (NAVA) played a crucial role in the lung development.
