Overview of Glycemic Control in Critical Care - Relating Performance and Clinical Results
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics.University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2007)
Background: Hyperglycemia is prevalent in critical care and tight control can save lives. Current ad-hoc clinical protocols require significant clinical effort and produce highly variable results. Model-based methods can ...
Digital Image Elasto-Tomography: Combinatorial and Hybrid Optimization Algorithms for Shape-Based Elastic Property Reconstruction
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2008)
Results from the application of three nonlinear stiffness reconstruction algorithms to two simple cylindrical geometries are presented in this paper. Finite-element simulated harmonic motion data with added noise were ...
Active insulin infusion using optimal and derivative weighted control
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics.University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2002)
Close control of blood glucose levels significantly reduces vascular complications in Type I diabetes. A control method for the automation of insulin infusion that utilizes emerging technologies in blood glucose biosensors ...
