Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR INCREASING VENTILATOR OXYGEN CONCENTRATION
Abstract
(EN)

Methods and systems for increasing oxygen concentration. An example system includes an oxygen valve configured to be coupled to an oxygen source, an oxygen plenum coupled to the valve, and a mixing valve. The mixing valve includes an oxygen inlet coupled to the oxygen plenum, an ambient-air inlet, and an outlet configured to be attached to an inlet of a blower of a ventilator. The system also includes a pressure sensor, coupled to the oxygen plenum, and a control device communicatively coupled to the pressure sensor and the oxygen valve. The control device receives a differential pressure, measured by the pressure sensor, and based on the measured differential pressure, generates a control signal to control the oxygen valve to maintain a target pressure of gas within the oxygen plenum.
