Royal Philips Electronics has acquired Dameca, a provider of anesthesia machines and accessories for the operating room. Dameca broadens Philips’ portfolio and provides opportunity for innovation in such areas as anesthesia-related clinical decision support.

“Dameca’s anesthesia machines are a significant complement to our current operating room portfolio and will enable us to offer an integrated solution that will simplify clinician workflow, improve financial outcomes for our customers, and help improve patient care,” said Steve Rusckowski, CEO for Philips Healthcare.

Philips currently offers anesthesia machines in select countries through Dixtal Medical, which Philips acquired in 2008.
