We believe that for certain medical conditions where the patient is clearly conscious and responsive, more benefit may be obtained if an oxygen supply is maintained at slightly elevated pressures, but with flow rate variable according to the patient’s own activity. To implement this concept, we intend to apply feedback control to an impeller pump to
