Our fields of excellence

Since 1937, breakthrough ideas have fueled our work on bringing efficient healthcare solutions to life. This is what we create within our three fields of excellence.


Successful airway management can make the difference between life and death. Whether confronted with a routine or a difficult airway, a single lung ventilation procedure or a bedside bronchoscopy procedure in the ICU, every one of our new generation of single-use visualisation devices plays a role in assisting the clinician to be successful. 


With the innovative development of the first self-inflating resuscitator, the “Ambu bag” in 1956, Ambu forever changed the history of saving lives. Now more than half a century later we are still dedicated to the development of innovative products that help save lives and simplify workflow and the daily life of the anaesthetists for the benefit of the patients.

Patient Monitoring & Diagnostics

In 1971, a Danish engineer by the name of Jan Rasmussen recognised the need to obtain reliable traces from biosignals. Since then we have been leading the way in the design and development of high quality single-use electrodes for accurate diagnosis. Ambu offers a complete range of electrodes for different applications to meet your needs.
