During recent years, due to the technological advancements many sophisticated techniques have evolved for ensuring fast recovery of the patients in hospitals. Need for good patient care in hospitals, and assessment and management of fluid and electrolyte is one the most fundamental requirement. Almost in all hospitals, an assist/nurse is responsible for monitoring the intravenous (IV) drip’s electrolyte level. However, unfortunately most of the time, the observer may forget to change the drip at the correct time due to their busy schedule.To overcome this critical situation, a IoT-based automatic alerting and indicating device - Smart IV Drip - is to be made. When fluid level/weight is low, the system should alert the observer through the display or/and mobile phone at the control room that indicates the room number of the patient for quick recovery. Hospitals typically use simple electrolytes drip with no indications that may create a problem in cases of reverse flow of blood (from body towards bottle). In hospital ICUs, CCUs, NICUs, OPDs, OTs, almost all departments of hospitals require such kind of automatic monitoring and indication system. Such monitoring systems can be useful not only in small, medium and large hospitals, but across healthcare industries including home care. If such a monitoring system is constructed, it would decrease the chances of patient hazards and increase the accuracy of healthcare in hospitals. In future, one may design a ready-made portable cover system for such an IV drip. Ready-made Wearable sensors on the sides of bottle can detect level/weight of-fluid inside the bottles. Such data can also be sent to nurses and/or doctor’s mobile and can alert them to monitor the fluid condition. Such devices also need protection against security breaches. This system must also avoid the fatal risk of air bubbles entering the patient’s bloodstream. Such a device will create assurity of safe and healthy condition to patients, and would also be helpful in monitoring and storage of data for future use.
Maximum 5 participants are allowed in a team. Students from different colleges cannot form a team
Evaluation will be done on the basis of the demonstration of hardware made to the judges, technical novelty, and presentation of the work. For assistance towards issuing equipment/component, please contact Aksh Chordia (9530200403) at least one day in advance.
All decisions taken by the organizing team will be deemed as final, and no more changes will be encouraged, thus holding the full authority to change any of the above rules as per circumstances.
