The health system is highly dependent on supplemental oxygen, used in many medical procedures. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for oxygen increased which requires an increase in management and clinical efficiency. The monitoring of the oxygen is currently performed by a person who observes the flow rate and adjusts it according to the medical prescription for the patient. This process has limited efficiency for monitoring dosage and leaks. The O2 Sensor Measurement, Transmission and Analysis System (ATAS O2) automatically measures the oxygen flow in the hospital’s piping system and transmits the data through its own internet network, improving oxygen management. The main objective of the study is to evaluate the costs and benefits of using the ATAS O2 system for monitoring and managing medical oxygen to hospital beds and to determine whether the technology will generate a financial and clinical benefit for the health system.
