A method for physiological control of a cardiac assist device

Abstract

This paper proposes a novel sliding-mode controller (SMC) to modulate the width of the voltage pulses driving the rotary blood pump, which is the actual control input in clinical settings. This controller is fed by the estimates of the input variables that are generated by the estimator. A lumped parameter model of the cardiovascular system, in conjunction… (More)
