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.

Fig8: Tasks diagram for the Oxygen Reader Subsystem

Mentions: The Oxygen Reader Subsystem was implemented by performing the tasks that are shown in the diagram of Fig. 8. The MCU is the main unit in the Oxygen Reader Subsystem as it has to perform and continuously control the following operations: (1) Control the LEDs switching and intensities of the sensor through the LEDs driving circuit, (2) Read the PPG signal from the sensor through the transducer circuit, (3) Manipulate the PPG signal using the DSP algorithms and compute the oxygen level and heart rate, and (4) Send wirelessly the computed oxygen level and heart rate every one second using the STM32 Bluetooth module to the Automated Adjustment Subsystem. Each subsystem was assembled on one side of a 2.14 inch 3.19 inch two-layer PCB board. For the final product, the PCB boards for the two subsystems will be smaller as we intend to increase the number of layers and have the components assembled on both sides. The Oxygen Reader Subsystem will be a wearable earlobe, and the Automated Adjustment Oxygen Delivery System will be a handheld device that attached to the oxygen cylinder or the oxygenator.Fig. 8
