Patient safety and cost reduction as a cause shortened post-operative recovery phases are part of the main issues to motivate automation in anaesthesia. The anaesthetist has four main objectives while maintaining anaesthesia; these are to provide hypnosis, analgesia, skeletal muscle relaxation and artificial ventilation. A framework for the design of closed-loop controllers in this context is presented, which includes a modelling concept based on a physiologically based pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic model. The testing and validation concepts prior to the clinical tests will be briefly discussed. Furthermore, the automation concepts of all four routine tasks were tested on patients during general anaesthesia. The main results of the clinical study will be presented.
Konrad Stadler received both a M.Sc. and more recently a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. His main interest is in modelling and control of biological systems.
