AMLEX - FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND OXYGEN RATIONING DEVICE

AMLEX - FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND OXYGEN RATIONING DEVICE

Context:

To increase the life of medical oxygen cylinders threefold, the Indian Institute of Technology, Ropar has developed a first-of-its-kind Oxygen Rationing Device – AMLEX.

Significance of AMLEX:

  • It supplies a required volume of oxygen to the patient during inhalation and trips when the patient exhales CO2. This process saves oxygen which otherwise unnecessarily gets wasted.
  • It is made specifically for oxygen cylinders, and can be easily connected between the oxygen supply line and the mask worn by the patient.
  • It is a ready-to use device that works with any commercially available oxygen therapy masks having multiple openings for air flow.

About AMLEX:

  • It uses a sensor which senses and successfully detects inhalation and exhalation of the user in any environmental condition.
  • The device can operate on both a portable power supply (battery) as well as line supply (220V-50Hz).
  • It has been developed by PhD students of the Biomedical Engineering Department of the institution - Mohit Kumar, Ravinder Kumar and Amanpreet Chander under the guidance of Dr. Ashish Sahani, Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering.
