Electrolyte bottle monitoring has become difficult due to tight schedules most especially during these pandemic times that have left health workers with little or no time. Improper monitoring of electrolyte bottles can result into serious life-threatening risks. We intend to design a reusable electrolyte level sensor using Ultrasonic sensor and Arduino Nano. The project will have a transmitter circuit that will use Rf communication to send the data to receiver circuit for processing. The transmitter circuit has an ultrasonic sensor that will be used to measure the distance of electrolyte level in bottle. The data is then sent wirelessly to the receiver circuit where percentage of the electrolyte level is shown on LCD module. If it shows 100% electrolyte consumed, then an alarm is sent off alerting the health worker in charge. It is also our aim to develop an electrolyte level detector that is reusable, efficient and most importantly affordable for health care industries. Building such a monitoring system, will reduce patient hazards and also improve health care service delivery in terms of accuracy. Health care workers will not need to constantly or manually assess the level of electrolyte left in the bottle most especially during night shifts. Air particles or bubbles can enter the patient’s blood stream if electrolyte bottle gets empty and still attached to patient. If these particles enter, it can result into immediate death. With further developments, it can be upgraded to send message to a doctor/nurse’s phone, along with the patient’s room number and other specifications.
