Vomit detector

The challenge

image The client is unable to reposition herself in bed and is at risk of choking on her own vomit if left unattended.

A detector was made using a water detector mounted on a plate and linked to the nurse call pager system. The system activates when a resistance of just over 4 megaOhm is bridged across the detector wires. The client can now receive the vital care she needs quickly without having to have constant supervision.
