An automated suction pump for ICU
Among the intubated patients in ICU, 40% of them die due to Hospital-acquired pneumonia. The ventilator that provides the breathing support causes such a consequence. For this reason, an intelligent vacuum suction pump has been conceptualized to detect the secretions and perform autonomous suction.
It was a group project assigned by COEO labs, where my contribution was in design detailing, product architecture, engineering drawings and prototype testing. The product has now successfully cleared the FDA approval and made it to the market with CE certification.
The pump performs discrete suctions whenever the secretions are formed without the intervention of ICU nurses.
