High flow Oxygen Concentrator with remote Adjustment
National Services Scotland, GLASGOW, Scotland UK, United Kingdom
Technologies for improved delivery of supplemental oxygen
Tech Brief: High flow oxygen concentrators are needed providing up to 15 lpm. When fitted with a remote control these could be used in Covid wards and also used for Pulmonary Fibrosis and Pulmonary Hypertension. No device suitable for hospital and home use exists.
FIGURES OF MERIT Value Proposition: This impacts on oxygen service providers, manufacturers, oxygen commissioners and healthcare providers. It will impact on Health service providers and Governments. Our solution presents an opportunity for partners to team up with The Home Oxygen Service in Scotland (part of NSS) to develop a solution to two significant problems at the same time- High Flow oxygen in Hospital and adjustable High flow in a domestic situation. The Home Oxygen Service is in a unique position to partner with others in that we have an existing national oxygen infrastructure to test and prove the concept. We have a single national Home Oxygen service with excellent relationships with Clinical teams to support and prove the concept both in a domestic and hospital situations. Through our own analysis of our own data we have seen a significant increase in patients needing high flow oxygen at home. This looks like it will continue to rise. Post Covid it is possible that the number of Pulmonary Fibrosis patients requiring High Flow will increase as many suspect.
