Adaptive bolus-based set-point regulation of hyperglycemia in critical care
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2004)
Critically ill patients are often hyperglycemic and extremely diverse in their dynamics. Consequently, fixed protocols and sliding scales can result in error and poor control. A two-compartment glucose-insulin system ...
Simulation and initial proof-of-concept validation of a glycaemic regulation algorithm in critical care
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2008)
Glycaemic control can reduce mortality in intensive care by 45%. A model-based control algorithm utilising insulin and nutritional glucose inputs is presented. Simulated long-term gluco-regulatory trials with the virtual-patient ...
