The design of an anesthesia device has been a multidisciplinary industrial design project, encompassing considerations of performance, ergonomics, safety, aesthetics, and user experience. The primary function of the anesthesia device is to deliver and maintain a precise mixture of gases and vapors to the patient for inducing and sustaining anesthesia. The design should facilitate precise control of gas flow rate, vapor concentration, and ventilation parameters. Anesthesia devices are used in high-pressure environments where quick and precise adjustments are important. Designing the control panel and the placement and arrangement of elements and gauges of the device while considering ergonomic parameters should prioritize indicators and signs to minimize the risk of error for anesthesia specialists and users. Patient safety is paramount in the design of anesthesia devices. The system must have safety mechanisms to prevent gas leaks, monitor vital signs, and provide alerts for abnormal conditions. Additionally, the design must comply with safety standards and regulations related to anesthesia device design.
Aesthetics in the design of anesthesia devices may seem less important than functionality and safety, but the visual design of the anesthesia device can influence user perception and instill a sense of trust and confidence. A sleek and modern design with attention to detail can enhance the overall user experience. Technological advancements such as digital displays, touch interfaces, and connectivity features can improve the performance and user-friendliness of anesthesia devices. Thoughtful integration of these technologies can enhance usability and efficiency. Depending on the intended use cases, the design may need to consider factors such as portability for transportation between medical facilities or within a hospital. Designing with minimum volume and reducing the weight of the device and handles and wheels can facilitate ease of movement of the anesthesia device.
The design and component separation ensure easy access to internal sections, guaranteeing that the device can be serviced, cleaned, or maintained easily by relevant specialists. Throughout the design process, specialists evaluated the anesthesia device product from various angles and parameters, providing feedback to the design team through samples, initial prototypes, and conducted tests. Based on this feedback, adjustments and modifications were made to the design.
