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.

Fig6: Prototype model for the Automated Oxygen Administration System

Mentions: The developed prototype model for PAOAS is shown in Fig. 6. It has two subsystems that communicate wirelessly using Bluetooth technology: an Oxygen Reader Subsystem and Automated Adjustment Oxygen Delivery Subsystem. The Oxygen Reader Subsystem captures the photoplethysmography (PPG) signal non-invasively in a continuous manner using the radiation sensing technique. The captured raw measurements are processed every one second in the MCU using DSP filters, and consequently oxygen saturation level, heart rate, and perfusion index are computed and sent wirelessly using Bluetooth technology to the Automated Adjustment Oxygen Delivery Subsystem. The computed PPGs measurements are received every one second by the Automated Adjustment Oxygen Delivery Subsystem and displayed on the attached small LCD display; while the amount of supplemental oxygen (for hypoxaemic patients) is adjusted accordingly by the closed loop proportional solenoid valve.Fig. 6
