Cascaded PID controller for anaesthesia delivery

The technologies for continuous measurement of the anaesthetic agents circulating in body fluids are not mature yet, though some preliminary prototypes exist already. We present a control algorithm that based on the real measurement of propofol plasma concentration may adjust the delivery rate. This opens a possibility for a safer anesthesia when the technologies for online measurement of drug concentration will be mature enough to be combined with our model.
