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.

Mentions: The two subsystems of the Portable Oxygen Administration System were integrated and tested against the required functionalities. To check the capability of the developed model in measuring the oxygen saturation level and the heart rate, measurements were compared to the PPG measurements from the commercial Pulse Oximeter (H100B) by conducting experimental measurements using the set up in Fig. 16. The experiment was conducted on the same person at the same time, where her fingertip of left hand was placed in the sensor for the commercial Pulse Oximeter and the her fingertip of the right hand was placed in the sensor of the oxygen Reader Subsystem as shown in Fig. 16a. Measurements were read from both system is shown in Fig. 16b. The experiment was repeated on different people. The experiments showed very good agreement between the and heart rate measurements from our system and from the commercial Pulse-Oximeter (H100B) (see Fig. 15). The developed prototype shows good agreements for and heart rate measurements when compared to the Commercial Pulse Oximeter. The agreement was good despite the need for our system to be calibrated based on experimental measurements. During next phase of this project, we will calibrate our developed system by conducting experimental measurements on different patients at hospital settings.
