Automation of anaesthesia: a review on multivariable control


Chang, Jing Jing and Syam, Syafiie and Raja Ahmad, Raja Kamil and Lim, Thiam Aun (2015) Automation of anaesthesia: a review on multivariable control. Journal of Clinical Monitoring and Computing, 29 (2). pp. 231-239. ISSN 1387-1307; ESSN: 1573-2614


Anaesthesia is a multivariable problem where a combination of drugs are used to induce desired hypnotic, analgesia and immobility states. The automation of anaesthesia may improve the safety and cost-effectiveness of anaesthesia. However, the realization of a safe and reliable multivariable closed-loop control of anaesthesia is yet to be achieved due to a manifold of challenges. In this paper, several significant challenges in automation of anaesthesia are discussed, namely model uncertainty, controlled variables, closed-loop application and dependability. The increasingly reliable measurement device, robust and adaptive controller, and better fault tolerance strategy are paving the way for automation of anaesthesia.
