Closed loop control of ventilation is traditionally based on end-tidal or mean expired CO/sub 2. [...] Key Method The clinician enters a desired gross alveolar ventilation (V/sub gA/' in l/min), and the ALV controller tries to achieve this goal by automatic adjustment of mechanical rate and inspiratory pressure level. The adjustments are based on measurements of the patient's lung mechanics and series dead space. The ALV controller was tested on a physical lung model with adjustable mechanical properties…Expand
A Dual Closed-Loop Control System for Mechanical Ventilation
TLDR
The results of the study have showed that the proposed dual closed-loop technique has effectively controlled mechanical ventilation under different test conditions.
Advanced lung ventilation system (ALVS) with linear respiratory mechanics assumption for waveform optimization of dual-controlled ventilation.
TLDR
The experimental results obtained with a lung simulator agree with the theoretical ones and show that ALVS performance is useful for the research activity aiming at the improvement of both diagnostic evaluation and therapeutic outcome relative to mechanical ventilation treatments.
A closed-loop mechanical ventilation controller with explicit objective functions
TLDR
The present controller can help to implement and evaluate objective functions that meet clinical goals and follow objective functions conjectured to reduce lung injury.
Automatic weaning from mechanical ventilation using an adaptive lung ventilation controller.
TLDR
ALV will provide a safe, efficient wean and will respond immediately to inadequate ventilation in patients when standard weaning criteria are met and there was a measurable difference in an index of airway resistance relative to muscular activity during the attempted wean by the ALV controller.
Modelling the ventilator-patient interaction: A pressure-cycled control strategy
TLDR
A first version of a simple but realistic physiological lung ventilation mathematical model is developed, which considers two different scenarios: the patient who needs to be ventilated as a consequence of having an insufficient respiratory drift and the patient without a spontaneous breathing (controlled ventilation).
Adaptive Lung Ventilation (ALV) during Anesthesia for Pulmonary Surgery: Automatic Response to Transitions to and from One-Lung Ventilation
TLDR
Investigation of changes in respiratory mechanics during transition to and from one-lung ventilation (OLV) and the automated adaptation of the ventilatory pattern to achieve a preset alveolar ventilation (V′ A) with the minimum work of breathing found it effective in maintaining V′ A.
History and principles of closed-loop control applied to mechanical ventilation
TLDR
A recent consensus conference on mechanical ventilation concluded that there is no recipe for adjusting the complex parameters of a ventilators and one wonders how ventilator adjustment can be automated.
Adaptive Support Ventilation: Review of the Literature and Clinical Applications
TLDR
Adaptive support ventilation is a newly developed dual control mode, using measured dynamic compliance and time constant, with an automated adjustment of tidal volume and respiratory rate combined to meet the preset minute ventilation.
Closed-Loop Systems for Mechanical Ventilation
TLDR
Both the passive forces opposing the gas flow into the chest and the active breathing performed by the respiratory muscles of the patient are important for the efficacy of ventilatory assistance.
Model-based control of mechanical ventilation: design and clinical validation.
TLDR
A model-based FE'(CO(2)) controller can be used in a clinical setting and has a better dynamic response to setpoint changes than a previously described fuzzy-logic controller.

TLDR
The DLV system has proven to be a highly effective and versatile means of providing differential ventilation as well as precise feedback control of essential physiologic parameters such as PaCO2 and tidal volume.
Impact of PEEP on lung mechanics and work of breathing in severe airflow obstruction.
TLDR
Low levels of PEEP may improve lung mechanics and reduce the effort required of mechanically ventilated patients with severe airflow obstruction, without substantially increasing the hazards of hyperinflation.

Low levels of PEEP may improve lung mechanics and reduce the effort required of mechanically ventilated patients with severe airflow obstruction, without substantially increasing the hazards of hyperinflation.
Determinants and limits of pressure-preset ventilation: a mathematical model of pressure control.
TLDR
This model provides a firm conceptual framework for understanding the physiological interactions between PPV and the patients they are intended to help and revealed distinct bounding limits for the outcome variables of ventilation and pressure.
Computer‐controlled optimization of positive end‐expiratory pressure
TLDR
This system provides fully automated noninvasive PEP titration and is flexible enough to incorporate easily any other PEEP titration algorithms, and should improve patient care by guaranteeing that PEEP therapy is truly optimized throughout the patient's recovery.
Closed-Loop Control of an Anesthesia Delivery System: Development and Animal Testing
TLDR
An anesthesia system which integrates closed-loop control of ventilation, oxygen, nitrous oxide, and anesthetic agent delivery into a closed breathing circuit makes available the advantages of closed-system anesthesia without encumbering the anesthesiologist with the control tasks associated with the technique.
The role of airflow resistance in patients with the adult respiratory distress syndrome.
TLDR
It is concluded that increased pulmonary airflow resistance contributes significantly to the altered lung mechanics in ARDS and may be secondary to tissue factors, airway hyperreactivity, or airway inflammation.

Polymorphous Ventilation: A New Ventilation Concept for Distributed Time Constants
TLDR
It is now generally accepted that the reduction in pulmonary gas volume has something to do with the cause of hypoxemia, and the rational basis of volume controlled ventilation with PEEP, which in the last two decades has been successfully employed with respect to oxygenation.
Analysis of behavior of the respiratory system in ARDS patients: effects of flow, volume, and time.
TLDR
Resistance and elastance were higher in ARDS patients and could be explained in terms of a model incorporating a standard resistance in parallel with a standardElastance and a series spring-and-dashpot body that represents the stress adaptation units within the tissues of the respiratory system.
