Model-based identification and diagnosis of a porcine model of induced endotoxic shock with hemofiltration
A previously validated cardiovascular system (CVS) model and parameter identification method for cardiac and circulatory disease states are extended and further validated in a porcine model (N = 6) of induced endotoxic shock with hemofiltration. Errors for the identified model are within 10% when the model is re-simulated and compared to the clinical data. All identified parameter trends over time in the experiments match clinically expected changes both individually and over the cohort. This work represents a further clinical validation of these model-based cardiovascular diagnosis and therapy guidance methods for use with monitoring endotoxic disease states.
