Design of Medical Device Annual Conference 2015

Niranjan Khadka presented a poster at the DMD Conference.

Poster Title: Design of Wireless Intraoperative Pulse Oximeter with Reticulated Pressure Sensitive Head

Link: KhadkaBiksonWiPOX

In order to provide a surgical tool that objectively and reliably measure tissue viability during surgery, we developed and validated a first generation compact handheld device for real time wireless monitoring of SPO2. Through the application of pressure sensor (provide feedback of real-time contact conditions of the device), reticulated shaft (facilitate flat contact with the tissue surface that are less visible), and systemic pulse rate input to signal tissue oxygenation through signal processing, this invention will enable surgeons to make treatment decision and measure the efficacy of the therapeutic interventions in real-time.
