The ability to deliver oxygen to patients requiring supplemental oxygen is an essential part of treatment for combat casualties who incur traumatic injuries. The current centralized oxygen generation and distribution system used by Army to meet this high oxygen demand is extremely heavy, maintenance intensive and require large dedicated power generators. Therefore, if the Army could replace the current centralized oxygen production and delivery system with a system of individual oxygen generators that are distributed to individual patients throughout the facility, it will make the overall oxygen delivery in combat casualty care to be more flexible and efficient. TDA Research proposes to develop a modular (stackable), compact, lightweight, ruggedized POC (referred to as miniPOC) for Army combat casualty care operations to provide medical grade oxygen for deployed medical facilities and personnel. The miniPOC will weigh less than 5 lbs and provide 6 LPM USP grade (minimum 90% vol.) oxygen (O2) at adjustable rates (1 to 6 LPM), both in continuous and pulsed operating modes. Two of these units can be stacked together to provide more than 10 LPM of oxygen flow for trauma casualties and other patients whose requirements are above 6 LPM.
