Introduction: One problem that arises when caring for patients with respiratory diseases is setting of oxygen with current flow meters, which needs monitoring by proficient nurses. This study aimed at designing a flow meter for oxygen setting in patients with respiratory diseases.
Methods: This device was registered in Real Estate Registration Organization of Iran with the following code 91414 dated 27/3/2017. The digital flow meter includes one flow meter, digital display screen, pulse oximeter input, entrance and exit of oxygen. The amount of needed oxygen for the patient is determined by the hemoglobin saturation level of the oxygen (Spo2) and delivery to the patient is by an automatic ally or manually. Display of delivered oxygen to the patient and heart rate in the digital method and existence of acoustic alarms that announce disconnection of oxygen are other functions of this device.
Results: Application of this device could reduce concerns about delivery of less or more oxygen than needed by patients, especially at home.
Conclusions: The digital flow meter is a safe device for delivery of oxygen to respiratory patients. Basis of this device is delivery of oxygen by hemoglobin saturation level. The researchers suggest clinical trial studies to demonstration the clinical function of this device.
