A new drip infusion solution monitoring system has been developed for hospital and care facility use. The system detects the fall of each drip chamber drop of fluid and also a free-flow situation. Three non-contacting copper foil electrodes are used. The electrodes are wrapped around the infusion supply polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tube from the solution bag,(More)
We have developed a remote drip infusion monitoring system for use in hospitals. The system consists of several infusion monitoring devices and a central monitor. The infusion monitoring device employing a Bluetooth module can detect the drip infusion rate and an empty infusion solution bag, and then these data are sent to the central monitor placed at the(More)
We have developed a drip infusion solution monitoring system for hospital and care facility use that is much more accurate than our previous reported system. The system consists of two electrodes and an acceleration sensor. The electrodes, which are wrapped around the infusion supply polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tube from the solution bag and the drip chamber,(More)
We have developed a drip infusion warning system for hospital and care facility use. In general, two kinds of infusion sets are used, which have drop factors of either 20 or 60. (A drop factor is the number of drops to deliver 1 ml of infusion solution.) When an infusion set having a 20 drop factor is used, the number of drops per drip is adjusted to 20. If(More)
We have been searching for a suitable frequency range for an electrical impedance measurement infusion solution drip monitoring system, which we have previously reported. This electrical impedance, which is formed between two electrodes wrapped around the infusion supply polyvinyl-chloride tube and around the drip chamber, is changed by the growth and fall(More)
