About the Maquet Servo-i

Maquet Servo-i Ventilator - Soma Technology, Inc.

The Maquet Sero-i is available in three main configurations; Infant, adult, and universal. These main configurations for the servo i are equipped with a number of ventilation modes that are suitable for each patient category. Further ventilation modes can be installed via software upgrades. The Siemens servo-i can be divided into two main units; the user-interface and the patient unit.

Maquet Servo-i Features

  • Enables treatment of all patient categories.
  • Transportation with no loss of treatment quality within and between hospitals.
  • Allows for investigation of different treatment options like Open Lung Tool and Auto mode.
  • Invasive ventilation.
  • Non-invasive ventilation with leakage compensation.
  • CO2 Analyzer for end-tidal carbon dioxide measurement that may give important insight into the efficiency of the ventilation.
  • Y sensor measurement, for neonatal/pediatric and adult patients. Enables measurement of pressure and flow as close to the patient’s airway as possible.
  • Nasal CPAP.
  • Heliox – gives a more laminar flow that reduces work of breathing.
  • Stress Index – will monitor hyperinflation or repeated alveolar collapse, thus allowing the identification of injurious ventilation (VILI).7
  • Ventilation Record Card – Facilitates research work and presentations.
  • Maquet ventilator accessories and consumables that are fully tested and designed to work optimally with Servo ventilators.
