O2matic - Automated oxygen titration

The O2matic oxygenator supports medical staff in hospitals and respiratory clinics by automatically securing stable oxygenation of blood for patients receiving oxygen therapy. In this way, it can save valuable working time for nursing staff.

O2matic supports administration

Oxygen therapy is one of the most frequently administered treatments across all medical departments in hospitals and respiratory clinics – not just in this time of crisis. 

It requires a lot of manual resources which are also needed elsewhere. 

As the patients are isolated and highly infectious, the nursing staff needs to dress up with personal protection equipment before visiting these patients and undress afterwards. 

This means additional workload for the anyhow stressed personnel combined with a residual risk of infections. By automatically adjusting the flow, O2matic helps to reduce the number of such visits. 

The real-time measurement of oxygenation (SpO2) ensures real-time adaptation of oxygen flow, if needed. 

In addition, o2matic provides for several alarm functions and data recording, e.g. to raise alert if the patients’ SpO2 level changes. 

O2matic. Makes the difference. 

Oxygen (O2) therapy is one of the most frequently administered treatments in hospitals. Given the widespread use of O2 therapy across all medical departments, the O2matic solution was developed to support medical staff in hospitals and respiratory clinics, with a focus on reducing manual effort and securing stable oxygenation of the blood. 

The O2matic device achieves this by continuously adjusting the flow of oxygen to the patient based on the actual oxygen saturation in the blood, which is measured by standard pulse oximetry. 

  • Automates adjustment of oxygen flow according to the target oxygen saturation range (SpO2)¹ 
  • Reduces episodes with severe and moderate hypoxemia² 
  • Automates weaning from oxygen therapy¹ 
  • Suitable for all oxygen patients at any stage of treatment with reliable SpO2 signal¹

How O2matic works

The main goal of oxygen treatment is to maintain the patient’s blood oxygen levels within the target range. Adjusting oxygen levels is usually a labor-intensive process, requiring nurses to keep close vigilance and perform several spot measurements and manual flow adaptations, until the target levels are met. O2matic makes the process less labor-intensive, while ensuring target oxygen levels are consistently met.
  • O2matic provide smart means to automatically adjust the oxygen flow until the intended oxygen level is reached. As the oxygen level can change over time continuously adapts the flow, so that it stays within the target range.
  • The O2matic device replaces the common pressure regulator – it continuously measures the patient’s blood oxygen levels and, by using proprietary algorithms, automatically adjusts the oxygen flow accordingly. This helps to free up nurse resources and to reduce the risk of insufficient oxygen levels2.

Further information on O2matic

  • Oxygen delivery device that automatically adjusts the oxygen flow to the patient’s needs, based on real-time data (SpO2, Flow, pulse).
    • User defined target SpO2 range (80 %– 100%)
    • Oxygen Flow = 0-15 Lpm (0-20 Lpm in manual mode)
    • Oximeter Signal Alarm delay (0 – 300secs)
    • Monitoring of SpO2, O2Flow and pulse
  • The device can be used in 2 modes:
    • The “O2matic” mode (automatic oxygen titration), by default
    • The manual mode with monitoring (“digital flowmeter”; 0-20Lpm)
  • Alarm functions are available for SpO2, flow, pulse, NO oxygen source connected, necessary O2 flow cannot be delivered (e.g. tubing blocked)
Works with all oxygen sources, including wall outlet and LIV or LIViQ Cylinders
Monitored parameters are recorded, thus being available for inclusion in the patient´s record and for proof of adequate treatment.
