|Title:||Design and implementation of controlled drug infusion system|
|Keywords:||Drug infusion;Drop sensing assembly;Microprocessor;Alarms;I V set|
|Abstract:||An inexpensive controlled drug infusion system based around 80C85 microprocessor with RAM, EPROM and peripheral interface devices is developed. In this system, the drop rate selection is done by BCD thumb wheel switches from 1 to 99 drops/min, LCD display is used for displaying the parameters settings, number of drops infused and various alarms messages for patient safety and unique drop sensing assembly is incorporated for accurate detection of falling drops in drip chamber. The prototype has been tested successfully on neonates.|
