Ventilator Cleared for Use in MR Environment

The SERVO-i Ventilator System is now FDA cleared for conditional use in the magnetic resonance (MR) environment. The system is intended for treatment and monitoring of all patients — neonatal, pediatric and adults — who require mechanical ventilation.
The system’s environment option is capable of providing critically ill patients with advanced ventilatory care using the same machine wherever they are in the hospital — in the ICU, in the MR examination room and during transport to and from the MR room.
The SERVO-i MR environment option helps patients who require an MRI exam to stay connected to the SERVO-i ventilator in the ICU. The new option has been classified as “MR conditional,” meaning it is safe for operation in the MR examination room provided that certain conditions are met.
