This study aimed to develop a device that can control the flow rate of oxygen contained in an oxygen tank inside the room from the nurse station up to 75 meters away via wireless transmission and display the oxygen flow rate and the oxygen level in the tank on the LCD. The methods used were experimental method and descriptive approach, specifically cross-sectional analysis. The results of the evaluation indicated high ratings which imply the effectiveness of the device. The evaluators strongly agreed with the efficiency of most of the features of the project. With this device in hospitals, fatal incidents due to improper oxygen administration and monitoring would be reduced.
