During recent years, we have seen much technological advancement which help to take better care of patient?s health and assure them fast and safe recovery. The most basic item necessary is competent patient care in hospitals, as well as proper management of fluid and electrolytes. In hospital almost all patients, mainly ICU patients, have to regulate the volume of fluids and electrolyte into the bloodstream 24X7 which is done using drip. These drips need regular monitoring or changing to maintain constant flow of fluids or to prevent any infection to patients. Though this system is simple, overcrowded hospitals and the risk of deficiency of nurses can put patients at health risk which can deteriorate patients? health more aggressively or in worse case it can lead to death. Almost in all hospitals, nurses or the hospital staff are responsible for monitoring the drip level. But unfortunately, because of their hectic schedule, the observer may forget to change the bottle at the appropriate time. During the pandemic, hospitals were overrun with patients, and nurses were unable to do manual regular checks on the drip conditions and drip level of every patient, even after working extra shifts. Many patients even died due to not being able to get proper care from nurses. The next step in providing more effective and easy healthcare is to automate such vital procedures. To overcome this critical situation, we are proposing an IoT(Internet of Things) based Drip Monitor System using Arduino UNO which eases the process of measuring and solves the issues of bubble formation in drips.
