Unleashing the power of single-use devices

Millions of patients and healthcare professionals worldwide depend on the functionality and performance of our products. We are dedicated to improve patient safety and determined to advance single-use devices.

The manifestations of our efforts range from early inventions like the Ambu Bag™ resuscitator and the legendary BlueSensor™ electrodes to our newest landmark solutions like the aScope™ endoscope – the world’s first single-use flexible video scope. Our commitment to bringing new ideas and superior service to our customers has made Ambu one of the most recognized medical companies in the world. 

Ambu is listed on the NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen. 

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. Ambu’s new generation of single-use visualisation devices all play a role in assisting the clinician to be successful, whether confronted with a routine or a difficult airway, a single lung ventilation procedure, or a bedside bronchoscopy procedure in the ICU. 


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 to the benefit of the patients.

Patient Monitoring & Diagnostics

In 1971, a Danish engineer by the name of Jan Rasmussen recognized 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.
