A computationally efficient Hill curve adaptation strategy during continuous monitoring of dose–effect relation in anaesthesia
- 15 Downloads
This paper discusses a possibility to simplify the number of parameters in the Hill curve by exploiting special mathematical functions. This simplification is relevant when adaptation is required for personalized model-based medicine during continuous monitoring of dose–response values. A mathematical framework of the involved physiology and modelling by means of distributed parameter progressions has been employed. Convergence to a unique dynamic response is achieved, allowing simplifying assumptions with guaranteed solution. Discussion on its use and comparison with other adaptation mechanism is provided.
