During the zenith of the Covid-19 Pandemic, healthcare workers were stretched thin trying to keep up with an ever-increasing influx of patients. In such circumstances, front line employees are unable to directly monitor and care for each and every patient.
Intravenous treatment is a medical procedure that involves injecting fluids, drugs, and nutrients into a patient’s vein. IV treatment is widely used to re-hydrate and deliver nutrients, and it is critical in assisting a person’s recovery.
IV drips, on the other hand, must be checked and refilled on a regular basis. The fluid flow must also be metered based on the patient and their condition. This IoT Intravenous Fluid Monitoring system employs a weight sensor to detect when the fluid level in the IV Infusion container drops and sends the information over the internet.
Internet of things
IOT Online Transmission, as well as automatic IV bag monitoring and alert data logging
Simple to use
Allows a single person to manage several patients more easily.
Working of Project
To provide this capability, the system uses a Weight Sensor, an Arduino mega microprocessor, a Wifi transmitter, and an LCD display. This enables a reliable and automatic IV monitoring system.
A tiny stand supports the Weight Sensor. To balance the stand, a cross section is built at the bottom. The weight sensor hook is suspended on the stand by a thin rod that stretches from the top.
At initially, the weight sensor is employed to determine the weight of an empty IV bag. This is referred to as “empty weight.” When the IV bag is hanging from the sensor stand, it drips continuously until the fluid is exhausted.
This data is continually processed and processed by the controller. On an LCD monitor, the current level of the IV bag is also indicated. This data is also sent to the IoT server through the Wifi Module. This level is shown on the IOT server’s web interface. When the level goes below a specified threshold, the LCD display as well as the online dashboard indicate that the bag is empty.
This project is very interesting and helpful for the people during covid. In case you need any help on it you may contact
