Getinge receives three FDA approvals

Getinge recently received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for several new software options for its Servo-u and Servo-n ventilators, as well as clearance for its new Servo-u MR ventilator for the MRI room. The software upgrades for the Servo-u and Servo-n offer several new functionalities across multiple patient categories.

Getinge North America president Eric Honroth said: “The Covid-19 pandemic and the heightened awareness of respiratory health has driven the need for personalised ventilation solutions for critically ill patients. Now more than ever, options for personalised lung protection and personalised weaning solutions are at the forefront of respiratory patient health. Getinge strives to support clinicians and patients by optimising lung protection and delivering solutions for personalised ventilation.”

The company’s new products are expected to be available in the US from July this year.
