This paper presents an approach to anesthesia control using a model-based controller. General anesthesia with propofol is considered. The proposal tries to take advantage of the benefits of model-based controllers to improve the performance of control in anesthesia. The controller proposed is based on the application of two control actions. First, a nominal(More)
BACKGROUND This study describes the design of a hypnosis closed-loop control system with propofol. The controller used a proportional-integral (PI) algorithm with the bispectral index (BIS) as the feedback signal. Our hypothesis was that a PI closed-loop control could be applied in clinical practice safely keeping the BIS within a pre-determined target(More)
This paper presents an efficient computer control technique for regulation of anesthesia in humans. The anesthetic used is propofol and the objective is to control the degree of hypnosis of the patient. The paper describes the basic hardware/software setup of the system and the closed-loop methodologies. The bispectral index (BIS) is considered as the(More)
