Repetitive control to improve pressure tracking performance in mechanical ventilation of sedated patients
Mechanical ventilation is used in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) to save lives of patients unable to breathe on their own by ensuring adequate oxygenation and carbon dioxide elimination.
Linear repetitive control for a nonlinear mechanical ventilation system using feedback linearization
The aim of this paper is to improve pressure tracking performance of a nonlinear mechanical ventilation system usinglinear repetitive control, while guaranteeing stability, by using feedback linearization and subsequently applying linear repetitive control to the linearized plant.
Robust model predictive control of an anaesthesia workstation ventilation unit
The use of robust model predictive control for pressure-controlled mechanical ventilation is proposed, with the goal of increasing the safety of the patient by considering physiological safety constraints.
Fuzzy PID Control for Respiratory Systems
Results show that FPID is a better controller in the sense of quicker response, lower overshoot, and smaller tracking error.
Adaptive Fuzzy Sliding Mode Control of a Pressure-Controlled Artificial Ventilator
Simulation results reveal that the proposed AFSMC controller demonstrates better tracking of targeted airway pressure compared with its counterparts in terms of faster convergence, less overshoot, and small tracking error.


Adaptive Control for Mechanical Ventilation for Improved Pressure Support
A control method is developed that achieves exact tracking of a time-varying target pressure, for unknown patient-hose-leak parameters and in the presence of patient breathing effort by an online estimation of the hose characteristics that enables compensation for the pressure drop over the hose.

This tutorial presents an overview of the modeling and control techniques practiced by engineers in critical care ventilation, and the lung and the ventilator system are modeled.
Variable-Gain Control for Respiratory Systems
In this paper, we introduce a variable-gain control strategy for mechanical ventilators in the respiratory systems. Respiratory systems assist the patients who have difficulty breathing on their own.

Experimental results on mechanical test lungs show a large improvement in uniform tracking by the adaptive controller over classical PID control methods currently used throughout the ventilator industry.
Iterative Learning Control: An Example for Mechanical Ventilated Patients
Asynchronies during mechanical ventilation are associated with mortality
Asynchronies are common throughout MV, occurring in all MV modes, and more frequently during the daytime, when patients with an AI above the cutoff are admitted to intensive care unit beds.
Model predictive control for a multi-compartment respiratory system
This paper designs a tracking controller using a framework that merges repetitive control and model predictive control for a given periodic reference volume pattern and applies it to a two-compartment lung mechanics model to demonstrate the efficacy.
Mechanical ventilation systems provide proper fresh air flow along with appropriate locations for intake and exhaust to ensure that air leaking into the house may come from undesirable areas.
