DRIPSENSE INFUSION MONITOR TEAM 2023
Dripsense Infusion Monitor is an automated infusion monitoring device, tailored to work with Infusion treatment(IV treatment). Infusion treatment is where fluids such as medication, blood, and nutrients have to be injected directly into the blood stream. This device is clamped on an infusion treatment set, and it monitors, measures, and sets the different infusion system parameters such as drop rate, and amount of fluid infused. Dripsense comes equipped with an alarm/alert system that notifies medical personnel for any anomalies such as deviation from set parameters, faults such as blockages in the infusion line, and blood backflow. It also notifies medical personnel about complete infusion.
Dripsense infusion monitor allows one medical personnel to monitor several infusion treatments at once, further improving workflow efficiency in medical centers by countering the effects of very low medical personnel to patient ratios.
This team is led by Nassejje Mary Anthony, a young fourth year Biomedical Engineering student at Mbarara University of Science and Technology.
