Assessing Control Performance in Closed-loop Anesthesia

Soltesz, Kristian LU ; Dumont, Guy A. and Ansermino, J. Mark (2013) 21st Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation In 21st Mediterranean Conference on Control & Automation (MED), 2013 p.191-196
Abstract
Recently, several control systems for closed-loop anesthesia have been demonstrated both in simulation and clinical studies. A set of performance measures, proposed by Varvel et al., have constituted the standard means of comparing such systems.



This paper debates the adequacy of the Varvel measures, as applied to closed-loop anesthesia, and proposes an alternative set of measures. Key features of the proposed measures are: wide acceptance within the control community; reflection of clinical feasibility; separate measures for induction and maintenance of anesthesia; separation of outlier detection and performance evaluation. The proposed measures are descriptive, few, and easy to compute.
