The Servo revolution


















The project was given a lot of freedom, and experimentation continued in an environment that fostered cross-institutional teamwork.


They also had financial support from a company that recognized the potential to add another technological landmark to their portfolio, which already included the ECG printer and the pacemaker.







The earliest commercial version of the Servo Ventilator: "Servo 900".






The Servo 900 was introduced at the Scandinavian Society of Anesthesiologists in June, 1971 – and immediately revolutionized intensive care ventilation.


Small, silent and featuring the famous Servo Feedback System to control gas delivery, the Servo 900 meant clinicians could now reliably achieve targeted volumes and respiratory rates for individual patients.

For the very first time, the ventilator cycle could be controlled with no effect on gas delivery due to changes in resistance or compliance.
