A mechanical ventilator with unprecedented levels of speed in sensing and control. Workflows, such as ARDSNet and NAVA®, to support protective ventilation strategies. A highly intuitive touch screen. Context based views, dialogues and recommendations with well-placed shortcuts. Any of these advantages alone would be reason to take a closer look. All of them together? A mechanical ventilator that is a secure investment for the next decade.
Multiple options for protective ventilation
SERVO-U® is the next step forward in making protective ventilation more accessible, understandable and easy to implement. It supports your ability to identify the patient's needs and to act accordingly. It makes clinically documented values, such as VT/PBW and the Edi respiratory vital sign, available on screen and easily trended.
Support for ARDSNet strategies
The significance of protective tidal volumes is well documented.1,2,3 SERVO-U automatically calculates tidal volume per kilogram of predicted body weight (VT/ PBW) to help you adhere to ARDSNet protocol strategies. This time-saving new core value is continuously measured and trended, facilitating adjustment of ventilation parameters in all modes.
Ventilate your patient within set targets
The SERVO COMPASS® is a new way of getting visual information from the ventilator to see if the patient is breathing as intended. SERVO COMPASS visually displays volume and pressure in relation to set targets in invasive modes. This visualization shows staff at a glance if the patient is within the ventilation targets or if adjustments are needed, ensuring the whole clinical team can follow the same targets for the patient.
Decision support with the help of Edi
The Edi respiratory vital sign (Electrical activity of the diaphragm), displayed on screen, helps clinicians track spontaneous breathing efforts. It also supports sedation management in all ventilation modes as well as in standby. This accurate onscreen information allows appropriate and timely response to changing breathing conditions.4,5
Ventilation support synchronized by the patient's brain
Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory Assist (NAVA) is the ventilation mode that utilizes the Edi signal to provide ventilation support synchronized by the patient brain. The NAVA therapeutic workflow helps the clinician during all stages of NAVA therapy. It includes support for choice of Edi catheter, calculation of insertion length, catheter positioning and NAVA preview to facilitate adjustment of NAVA mode settings.
Built-in High Flow therapy
High Flow therapy reduces the patient’s work of breathing by delivering a gas flow volume to meet or exceed the patient’s inspiratory flow rate, supporting the patient’s own efforts and minimizing limitations.6 This therapy involves a set flow that drives the accurate set level of heated and humidified oxygen, improving patient comfort and tolerance.7 Both Edi monitoring and the integrated nebulization can be used during High Flow therapy.
SERVO-U uses an integrated nebulization system, removing the need for another device. The Aerogen micropump technology that is integrated for nebulization delivers all approved medications for use with standard nebulizers without heating or degrading them.8 The aerosol generator does not collect or nebulize condensate from the ventilatory circuit, and it also delivers medicine more efficiently to patients’ lungs.9
Inspiring confidence at bedside
The SERVO-U ventilator is designed to enhance user confidence in tailoring treatments to the individual patient condition. It supports you directly at bedside, every step of the way. The menu takes you directly to what you need, while the interface carefully visualizes what you are doing. On screen, context based guidance, like SAFETY SCALE™, tutorials and prompts help you make informed decisions.
Informed decisions at bedside
Guidance and other context based information help you understand how the changes you make may affect the patient’s breath. The SAFETY SCALE tool allows for quick changes while providing clear feedback that help you avoid unusual ranges for your patient category.
On screen tutorials
On screen tutorials help you brush up on your knowledge, and support you when applying settings and ventilation modes. Easy to find, and always available bedside in the moment.
Tools to help you evaluate the patient´s condition
SERVO-U gives you the opportunity to share patient information for review, research and education. At bedside and at a location of your choice. You can either use the built-in 72 hours trend or use the recording feature. When you make your recording, SERVO-U allows you to capture what just happened, with a pre– and post recording function.
Optimized alarm management
The alarm management system includes short texts that help you respond to alarms. Highlights let you know what values are effected and shortcuts take you directly to what needs change. Managing alarms in a SERVO ventilator has never been easier.
Securing your investment for the future
Purchasing a ventilator is a significant investment, and you want to be confident with your choice. That is why SERVO-U is also designed to grow with you. You can configure according to your current needs, and upgrade cost-effectively when those needs change, or when new features become available.
Performance from day one with scalable services
MCare® Services add value from day one and ensures that your system operates at peak performance throughout its lifecycle, so that your staff can take advantage of all its features in the best possible way. Furthermore MCare Remote Services and Portal help you monitor and access information on your fleet and Genuine Maquet consumables help guarantee performance.
Ergonomic design provides flexibility
The ergonomic design means the system can be placed to the left or right of the bed. It can also be mounted on a ceiling supply unit, trolley, or on the bed itself.
Interchangeable product modules
Interchangeable hardware modules and components means the same feature can be used at different times on mixed SERVO ventilator fleets, lowering overall costs.
Part of a groundbreaking ventilator family
The SERVO ventilator family has a history of being groundbreaking. SERVO-U is no different. And physicians, respiratory therapists, nurses and biomeds from all over the world helped us build it. If you haven’t tried SERVO-U yet, please do. We believe it will forever change the way you look at life-supporting devices.
