Abstract: The purpose of this project is to reduce the burden and responsibilities of operating room (OR) staff by implementing a system to monitor the intraarterial line for bubbles, monitoring the volume of the saline bag, regulating pressure of the saline bag cuff, stopping the flow of saline if an error occurs and alerting the OR staff. This device will be useful for detecting catastrophic errors that could cause patients to have strokes, or possible death. This poster summarizes the work of the mechanical engineering team this semester.
