UNS — Faculty Member of the Faculty of Engineering (FT) Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) Surakarta and researcher in the Institute for Research and Community Service  (LPPM) UNS, Ubaidillah S.T., M. Sc, Ph. D., and his team created Helmet Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) based on the Internet of Things (IoT) for Covid-19 patients. The innovation of CPAP Helmet based on IoT could manage the oxygen levels at the CPAP helmet interface and oxygen saturation integrated with IoT.

Between the monitoring and evaluation held by LPPM UNS on Thursday (21/10/2021), Ubaidillah stated that the high Covid-19 infection level in Indonesia caused chaos because many patients were experiencing difficulty breathing and struggling to find breathing apparatus. This condition inspired Ubaidillah and his team to create a non-invasive breathing apparatus. “We also see an opportunity because of the minimum use of non-invasive breathing apparatus in the form of CPAP helmet, while CPAP helmet has been found to significantly reduce virus aerosolization, which is beneficial in reducing the transmission of Covid-19,” Ubaidillah explained.

With assistance from Rizqi Husain Alfathan, Bioma Cakrawala, Muhammad Dzaky Musyaffa, Rani Dwilarasati, and Azzahra Fadhlila Aulia Nisa, Ubaidillah added an oxygen sensor and oxygen saturation sensor (SpO2) on CPAP helmet. The helmet was designed with IoT technology which enables people to receive direct measuring results through a smartphone. The helmet is reusable after replacing the oxygen cylinder and neck adhesive. Ubaidillah and the team hoped that this tool could help healthcare workers and healthcare providers in handling Covid – 19 pandemic.

3D Design and Innovation

the CPAP helmet has several 3D design excellence that facilitates the assembly and dismantling process with materials that are compatible with the patient’s body, reusable after sterilization process of the components, and replacing the oxygen tank and neck adhesive. The IoT component in the helmet aims to monitor oxygen level and saturation. “The Prototype CPAP Helmet is equipped with electronic components including Envitec OOM202 oxygen sensor, max30102 oximeter sensor, Bluetooth HC-05 module, and Arduino mega pro-2560 integrated with the IoT system,” Ubaidillah added.

The oxygen sensor was installed to measure the oxygen level inside the helmet, while the oximeter sensor measured patients’ oxygen saturation when they scanned their fingers on the infra-red sensor. The measurement results will be read by Arduino and sent to the smartphone using the Bluetooth HC-05 module, and the user could monitor the results on their phone in realtime. This innovative application can be used by everybody. Humas UNS
