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.

Fig7: Design architecture of the Oxygen Reader Subsystem

Mentions: The Oxygen Reader Subsystem consists of oxygen sensor, analog front end (AFE) unit, microcontroller, power unit, and bluetooth module as shown in Fig. 7. The selected microcontroller (STM32F40xxx) for this Subsystem has the required peripherals and capabilities to accomplish the required tasks, such as A/D, D/A, Timers, SPI, USART, DSP and power management capabilities. The microcontroller reads the raw PPG signal from the AFE circuit, where the AFE is simply a transducer circuit and a LEDs driving circuit. The transducer circuit converts the low detected current from the photodiode of the sensor to a readable voltage by the microcontroller’s A/D. The LEDs driving circuit controls switching operation and the intensities of the Red and Infra-red LEDs of the sensor based on commands from the MCU.Fig. 7
