RESPIRATORY: OXYGEN CONCENTRATORS Oxygen concentrators reduce the level of nitrogen in the air, and increase the oxygen level. Oxygen concentrators are used to assist patients with respiratory illnesses or lung disease. These people have difficulty absorbing oxygen into the blood. Solutions for Oxygen Concentrators An oxygen concentrator receives air, purifies it, and then distributes the newly formed air. Air is made up of 80 percent nitrogen and 20 percent oxygen. An oxygen concentrator increases the oxygen content to 90-95. Sieve bed filters contain a material called Zeolite, which...

Infusion pumps are used to deliver fluids, medicines or nutrients to patients. Fluids and medicines are delivered intravenously, directly into the blood stream and nutrients are delivered directly into the stomach. Infusion pumps are commonly used in hospital intensive care units and wards, but smaller portable infusion pumps are now being used to treat patients at home. Infusion pumps control the flow of fluids and ensure that patients get the correct dosage, due to the wide variety of medicines used and the cleaning requirements, force senors are typically used to measure the pressure...
