DRDO develops SpO2 – Blood Oxygen Saturation supplemental Oxygen Delivery System

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has developed a system, which is of great value not only to the Indian Army soldiers fighting in the Extreme High Altitudes Areas but also would be a boon to the country in this extreme crisis of Covid 19 pandemic.

The Defence Bio-Engineering and Electro Medical Laboratory (DEBEL), Bengaluru of DRDO has developed SpO2 – Blood Oxygen Saturation supplemental Oxygen Delivery System. This automatic system delivers supplemental oxygen based on the SpO2 levels and prevents the person from sinking into a state of Hypoxia, which is fatal in most cases, if sets in.

Hypoxia is a state in which the amount of oxygen reaching the tissues is inadequate to fulfill all the energy requirements of the body. This is exactly the situation that gets replicated in a Covid patient due to the virus infection and has been leading to the current crisis.

The system is a boon in the current pandemic as the same can be used in the household for moderate Covid patients for Oxygen flow therapy. The automatic usage has huge advantage in the household, as the oximeter would give an Alarm for Lower SpO2 value. It will automatically increase or decrease the O2 flow based on SpO2 setting which can be auto adjusted. With it’s availability and simple to use facility by a common person, the system shall greatly reduce the workload and exposure time of Doctors and Paramedics to monitor the SpO2 levels of the patient.
