Portable Automated Oxygen Administration System for hypoxaemic patients.

Alzoubi K, Alguraan Z, Ramahi OM - Springerplus (2016)

Bottom Line: Oxygen is a lifesaving medication that should be offered with an administration to a patient who suffers from oxygen deficiency to avoid toxic effects of excessive oxygen supplement as well as to minimize the exposure to hypoxaemia.In this work, a prototype model for a Portable Automated Oxygen Delivery System that consists of two subsystems: an Oxygen Reader Subsystem and an Automated Adjustment Oxygen Delivery Subsystem, both communicating wirelessly, has been developed.The system promises significant benefits in improving the life quality of hypoxaemic patients as well as healthcare service for oxygen delivery administration.

ABSTRACT
Oxygen is a lifesaving medication that should be offered with an administration to a patient who suffers from oxygen deficiency to avoid toxic effects of excessive oxygen supplement as well as to minimize the exposure to hypoxaemia. This work aims to automate the process of administering oxygen delivery in order to extend the continuous oxygen administration process beyond the IC units, reduce the cost of oxygen administration in terms of well-trained health care providers and equipment, prolong the lifetime of oxygen supplement, and help in the process of weaning patient from oxygen. In this work, a prototype model for a Portable Automated Oxygen Delivery System that consists of two subsystems: an Oxygen Reader Subsystem and an Automated Adjustment Oxygen Delivery Subsystem, both communicating wirelessly, has been developed. The system promises significant benefits in improving the life quality of hypoxaemic patients as well as healthcare service for oxygen delivery administration.

Fig14: Flow chart for the Automated Adjustment Oxygen Delivery Subsystem

Mentions: The Automated Adjustment Oxygen Delivery Subsystem receives data from the Oxygen Reader Subsystem through the Bluetooth module every one second. The received data is checked against predefined values. If there is no PPG readings in the received data, a message Please Insert your Finger appears in the LCD display as shown in Fig. 13a, and the proportional solenoid valve stops delivery of oxygen. If the received data carries PPG measurements, the (, HR, PI) will be displayed on the LCD display as shown in Fig. 13b. The amount of oxygen that should compensate for the oxygen deficiency is determined based on the level and predefined values for oxygen administration. Consequently, the proportional solenoid valve will be controlled to allow specific defined amount of oxygen to be delivered to the hypoxaemic patient from the oxygen supplement. The closed-loop solenoid valve controls the flow rate of the delivered oxygen from the oxygen supplement (Cylinder or Oxygenator). The amount of supplemental oxygen is modified every minute to consider the level or based on other criteria for oxygen administration procedure. The Flowchart for the Automated Adjustment Oxygen Delivery Subsystem is shown in Fig. 14.Fig. 12
