Provide a summary of the concept, how it works/could work, and why it could be successful
The smart vasoactive pump is a smart solution for patients on chronic vasoactive agents. It is connected with the physiology of the patients through external and invasive monitoring techniques and provide vasopressors in case of hypotension, while providing BP lowering agents in case of hypertension.
Explain briefly the specific problem(s) you are trying to solve, and how your solution impacts or will impact the region
Trying to solve the problem of nursing shortage in terms of quality or quantity when it comes to caring for critically ill patients. The device will streamline the care of septic patients or patients with hypertensive emergency by providing a safe and effective method of stabilizing their blood pressure and heart rate. The device can also be used in the OR setting to streamline the care of OR patients with unstable vital signs.
