      My purpose in this thesis, LabVIEW based intravenous applied food and medicines preparation system design and to provide real time control. Recently, in the field of medical technology are increasing rapidly well. With the development of microprocessor technology, in the field of medicine, scientists have begun to use them in our country. Most important examples of these are used in the medical field.

TPN and oncological drugs preparation are the best examples by intravenous applied to food and medicines. In many places in our country this process is done manually and is experiencing serious problems arising from this, these problems are reason to some death at oncology and newborn units in hospitals.

      In some hospitals, newborn and oncological drugs preparation are made by automation. These systems and devices are pruducted only two companies all arround the world, in which all these systems need to import that I observed during my studies I have. Oncological drugs are so expensive if they are prepared manually, it causes some waste. At the same time, for stuff and clinicians, there is a health hazards. As a result, the system must be prepared by untouched.

Moreover, the implementation of automation in the TPN system, infection related deaths and hospital infection at newborn units significant decreases also. The patients’ feeding of newborn and other intensive care ünits not only dependent on the attention of nurses, also controled by the system is extremely well.
