BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Propofol is widely used for hypnosis induction and maintenance of general anesthesia. Its effect can be assessed using the bispectral index (BIS). Many automatic infusion systems are based in pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) models to predict the response of the patient to the drug. However, all these models do not(More)
This paper presents a new fault detection system in hypnotic sensors used for general anesthesia during surgery. Drug infusion during surgery is based on information received from patient monitoring devices; accordingly, faults in sensor devices can put patient safety at risk. Our research offers a solution to cope with these undesirable scenarios. We focus(More)
In this paper, the performance of frequency-hopping spread-spectrum wireless sensor network systems based on the generalized approach to signal processing in the presence of noise [1-5], which employ noncoherent reception and transmission diversity, is analyzed for frequency-selective Rayleigh fading channels. Two different types of transmission diversity(More)
