In ambulatory surgery, anesthetic drugs must be administered at a suitable rate to prevent adverse reactions after discharge from the hospital. To realize more appropriate anesthesia, we have developed a hypnosis control system, which administers propofol as an anesthetic drug to regulate the bispectral index (BIS), an electroencephalography (EEG)-derived(More)
In order to reduce intraoperative blood loss and spare blood transfusion, we developed a blood pressure control system using a state-predictive controller. Using adult mongrel dogs, the mean arterial pressure (MAP) was recorded from a femoral artery while trimethaphan camsilate was infused at constant rates. A pure delay plus a first-order delay model was(More)
We developed an automatic blood pressure control system to maintain the blood pressure of patients at a substantially low level during a surgical operation. The developed system discharges two functions, continuous feedback control of the mean arterial pressure (MAP) by a state-predictive servo controller and risk control based on the inference by(More)
We developed a novel blood glucose control system, using a model predictive method, to achieve optimal control of the blood glucose level in severely diabetic or pancreatectomized patients. This system is designed to predict glucose level changes in advance, considering delayed response time and the administered doses of insulin. This method is also(More)
In critically ill patients suffering from hyperglycemia, it has been recently shown that mortality and morbidity can be reduced by keeping blood glucose within the range of 80-110 mg/dL. However, maintaining glycemia within such range is difficult due to the time variability in insulin sensitivity in critically ill patients. In this paper, we propose a(More)
A blood pressure autoregulation system based on the state-predictive control method was developed to minimize intraoperative blood loss and hence avoid blood transfusion. In this report, the system is further improved by incorporating fuzzy logic with a fail-safe function and an individual parameter-identifying function. The safety and stability of this(More)
Treatment of type 1 diabetes consists of maintaining postprandial normoglycemia using the correct prandial insulin dose according to food intake. Nonetheless, it is hardly achieved in practice, which results in several diabetes-related complications. In this study we present a feedforward plus feedback blood glucose control system that considers the(More)
This paper proposes a novel hypnosis control method using Auditory Evoked Potential Index (aepEX) as a hypnosis index. In order to avoid side effects of an anesthetic drug, it is desirable to reduce the amount of an anesthetic drug during surgery. For this purpose many studies of hypnosis control systems have been done. Most of them use Bispectral Index(More)
