Adaptive Multi-Drug Infusion Control System for General Anesthesia in Major Surgery

Project description

Computer-controlled anaesthesia

Administration of drugs during surgical anaesthesia occurs manually by the anesthesiologist, who takes into account very specific physiological parameters and expected patient response to surgical stimuli. In complex situations, though, involving patient comorbidities or drug antagonism, optimisation of drug infusion rate seems impossible. The key objective of the AMICAS project, funded by the European Research Council, is to pave the way towards computer-assisted drug optimisation using multivariable models. The idea is to combine these models with human expertise for reducing as much as possible the large uncertainties in patient response under anaesthesia and improving surgical outcomes.
