The Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) has announced the development of SpO2 (Blood Oxygen Saturation) supplemental oxygen delivery system.

The SpO2 system is intended for the Indian Army soldiers conducting operations in extreme high-altitude areas.

The system’s electronic hardware is designed to operate at extreme altitudes while the software safety checks ensure its reliability in field conditions.

The automatic system delivers supplemental oxygen based on the SpO2 levels.

Using a wireless interface, the system reads the SpO2 levels readings from a wrist-worn pulse oximeter module and controls oxygen supply regulation to the subject via a proportional solenoid valve.

A lightweight portable oxygen cylinder delivers oxygen through nostrils.

It can safeguard soldiers by not letting them fall into a state of Hypoxia.

In most cases, the condition proves to be fatal due to an inadequate amount of oxygen supply to the human body’s tissues.

The oxygen delivery system comes amid a massive shortage of oxygen cylinders in the country due to a resurgence in Covid-19 cases.

According to the MoD, the system can also be used in households for patients identified with moderate/mild Covid as it provides oxygen flow therapy.

It has been developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation’s (DRDO) Defence Bio-Engineering & Electro Medical Laboratory (DEBEL) in Bengaluru.

It has already been moved to mass production with the industry. The system is available in different sizes from 1l and 1kg weight with 150l of oxygen supply to 10l and 10kg weight with 1,500l of oxygen supply.

In January this year, India unveiled the locally developed machine pistol ASMI, jointly developed by the DRDO and the Indian Army, for the defence forces.
