Derivative weighted active insulin control algorithms and trials
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2003)
Close control of blood glucose levels significantly reduces vascular complications in diabetes. Heavy derivative controllers utilising the data density available from emerging biosensors are developed to provide tight, ...
A minimal cardiovascular system haemodynamic model for rapid diagnostic assistance
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering.University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2003)
Characterising circulatory dysfunction and choosing a suitable treatment is often difficult, and time consuming. This paper outlines a numerically stable minimal model of the human cardiovascular system (CVS) specifically ...
Insulin + nutrition control for tight critical care glycaemic regulation
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics.University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2006)
A new insulin and nutrition control method for tight glycaemic control in critical care is presented from concept to clinical trials to clinical practice change. The primary results show that the method can provide very ...
