Abstract: This project involves the designing of a medical device that supports two different drug delivery systems. One of which is a liquid injection, that can be intravenous or through the digestive tract. The Second part involves another drug delivery system which helps us inject drugs into the lungs in the gaseous phase. Infusion pumps are basically syringing control devices that are used for the slow injection of liquid food or drugs. The injection pump we attempt to design in this project is a simple robot that uses a motor to control the piston of the syringe with precision. In this project, the nebulizer uses a piezoelectric disk that is vibrated at an ultrasonic resonating frequency that ejects the liquid into the atmosphere as very small Droplets.
