Abstract:

HyperBaric Oxygen (HBO) medical treatment therapy is performed on humans in presurrized chambers. The chambers are operated by a trained technician that directs the chamber systems fro a console. The operator monitors the chamber parameters, the patient's physical condition and controls the electrical and mechanical systems from the console. The current state of HBO console design is a legacy from USNAVY diving systems. NAVY diving consoles are large in size and complex to operate. HBO medical facilities need a small compact computerized display and control station. The Phase I technical objective is to develop a low cost, COmpact functionally Smart and easy to use COnsole (COSCO) for HBO medical facilities. Innvoations introduced for COSCO include: WINDOWS-like software to improve ease of use and operator control, full operator programmable presentation of chamber and patient data, fuzzy control system logic, artificial intelligence and/or neural networks to advice and direct chamber operation or patient treatment in emergency or unusual circumstances, high speed data compression to collect and store video and audio record of a treatment dive, integration of fiber optic blood gas monitoring sensors into the patient monitoring function, and hardware and software redundancy to insure uninterrupted safe operation.
