MIPRO 2011

As part of the 34th International Meeting on Information and Communication Technology, Electronics and Microelectronics (MIPRO 2011) which was held in May 2011 in Opatija, Croatia employees of New Technology Ltd. Sarajevo presented a paper titled „Automated closed loop controller of inspired oxygen system for improved mechanical ventilation in newborns“.

The work was presented by the first author of the paper, the service and laboratory manager Mr. Almir Badnjevic, dipl.ing.el.

MIPRO is accepted by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) groups, and thus also represents the largest and most powerful Association of Electrical Engineers around the world.

Abstract of the paper:

Paper itself describes operation principles of mechanical ventilator, it’s electronic and pneumatic solutions, as well as wide spectrum of advantages for patients that are coming with this technology. Special emphasis is placed on new technology in mechanical ventilation, where unlike before when nurses and doctors were constantly monitoring and adjusting O2levels delivered to newborn / neonate by ventilator, automation of this process, using “The closed loop controller of inspired oxygen system (CLiO2), offers opportunity for better care of neonates.

We will display methods where CLiO2 system noninvasively and continuously measures the oxygen level in a newborn’s blood using Masimo SET® Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry technology to provide accurate and saturation of peripheral oxygen (SpO2) measurements, even under challenging clinical conditions. Paper describes that the CLiO2 system processes blood oxygen saturation levels by a computer algorithm that then anticipates trends and modifies the amount of oxygen delivered.

It will be shown how this system helps reduce complications associated with newborns needing mechanical ventilation and can free up time for clinicians to better care for some of their most vulnerable patients.
