Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper, we discuss the first application of recently developed ℒ1-adaptive control methods for closed-loop control of anesthesia delivery during surgery. Our initial objective, described herein, is to design controllers that are robust to inter-patient variability, such that patients follow a prespecified Bispectral Index profile. The controllers are designed from identification-based models constructed from clinical trial data.
