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.

Fig5: Design goals of PAOAS

Mentions: The promising benefits of using the developed PAOAS for oxygen delivery administration to healthcare service are demonstrated by (see Fig. 4): (1) Improving the administered oxygen therapy in ICUs and hospitals settings, (2) Extending the administered oxygen therapy beyond the hospital settings, and (3) Overcoming the scarcity of well-trained healthcare providers. To achieve the intended benefits of the PAOAS, the design goals of such a system are depicted in Fig. 5.Fig. 5
