Title
(EN) Monitoring and maintaining an intravenous assembly without medical staff involvement for safe distancing enforcement
Abstract
(EN)

A method and system to monitor and autonomously configure an intravascular assembly without medical staff involvement or presence. In this solution, a robotic device is associated with an intravascular assembly, which has tubing through which fluids are delivered intravenously. Monitoring of the tubing is initiated. In response to the monitoring, an errant flow through the tubing is detected; typically, the errant flow results from one of: a kink or twist in the tubing, an air bubble in the tubing, an occlusion or clot in the tubing, and pressure variations. In response to detecting the errant flow, and in advance of an audible alarm being generated in association with the intravascular assembly, a command is then issued to the associated robotic device. The command is configured to initiate, by the robotic device, physical engagement with and mechanical manipulation of the tubing, thereby remediating the errant flow automatically.
