Internal atrial defibrillation: the importance of lead location, waveform morphology, and shock synchronization

R. A. S. Cooper Proceedings of 17th International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1995

Atrial fibrillation (AF) remains the most common arrhythmia encountered in clinical medicine and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Electrical cardioversion remains a very effective method for the acute termination of AF. However, the standard method for atrial cardioversion requires shock strengths of 50 to 400 joules delivered across transthoracic cutaneous electrodes. These shocks strengths can be detrimental to ...


Drug-induced respiratory depression: an integrated model of drug effects on the hypercapnic and hypoxic drive

Antonello L. G. Caruso; Thomas W. Bouillon; Peter M. Schumacher; Martin Luginbuhl; Manfred Morari 2007 29th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2007

Drug-induced respiratory depression is a common side effect of the agents used in anesthesia practice to provide analgesia and sedation. Depression of the ventilatory drive in the spontaneously breathing patient can lead to severe cardiorespiratory events and it is considered a primary cause of morbidity. Reliable predictions of respiratory inhibition in the clinical setting would therefore provide a valuable means ...


Using Neural Networks to Identify Airway Obstructions in Anesthetized Patients based on Photoplethysmography

B. R. Knorr; S. P. McGrath; G. T. Blike Proceedings of the IEEE 32nd Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference, 2006

Photoplethysmography has been recently studied as a non-invasive indicator of circulatory and respiratory function. In this study, the analysis of this signal and its features is used to identify airway status in patients under the influence of anesthetics. A neural network is utilized with reasonable accuracy to classify segments as being times of `obstructed' vs. `normal' airways status.


Simulation to Test Hard-Stop Implementation of a Pre-anesthetic Induction Checklist

Douglas S. Wetmore; Md. Nishant A. Gandhi; Md. Christopher Curatolo; Md. Andrew Goldberg; Md. Patrick McCormick; Md. Adam Levine; Md. Samuel Demaria 2014 IEEE 27th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems, 2014

Checklists have been shown to reduce patient complications, improve communication in the operating room, and improve the management of simulated operating room crises. Using a randomized, controlled, observer-blinded design, we compared performance of anesthesiology residents in a simulated operating room using a checklist in completing a thorough pre-anesthetic induction evaluation and setup, to residents with no checklist. The checklist was ...


Bridging the gap between modelling and control of anesthesia: An ambitious ideal

Clara M. Ionescu; Dana Copot; Cosmin Copot; Robin De Keyser Fractional Differentiation and Its Applications (ICFDA), 2014 International Conference on, 2014

This work focuses on the problematic of modeling the drug diffusion process that occurs in the human body when an anesthetic drug is taken up. This is performed here using emerging tools from fractional calculus, i.e. by using fractional-order impedance models (FOIMs). A novel interpretation is given to the classical pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic models for drug uptake in the body. ...

  • Future Technologies for Medical Applications

    The modern age of surgery began at the end of the nineteenth century because medicine discovered the Industrial Age, with its wealth of revolutionary technologies such as anesthesia, asepsis, microscopy, and new materials. At the close of the twentieth century, the Information Age diffused into medicine, and a revolution of even greater magnitude occurred. To understand the change it is necessary to look outside of medicine to society as a whole and find the underlying principles, and then apply them within our discipline. The medical record is now becoming electronic and nearly all of our imaging has changed from film (atoms) to digital images (bits). Medical education is using computer-aided instructions, CD-ROM, and VR to simulate and supplement cadaver and animal models. With the new research in robotics, even our hand motions are being changed in to electronic signals and being sent from one place to another. The future of medicine is no longer blood and guts, but bits and bytes. A commonality of information enables us to tie together a whole new concept of how medicine could evolve, like an entire medical ecosystem, whereby discoveries in micro-sensors permits new imaging devices, which in turn enable new forms of image-based surgery. It is an upward spiral, one discovery providing a giant step forward toward the next technology and escalating the whole changing system logarithmically. This could help explain why we are all so overwhelmed by the rapidity of our changing profession. Yet the younger generation of physicians-to-be are not so uncomfortable with the rapidly changing technologies. One of their fundamental tools is the ability to understand the world in the form of three-dimensional (3-D) visualization. There is a speculative scenario that can be used as a framework to illuminate the integrating power of this concept. It is referred to as the doorway t o the future and extrapolates to 20, 50 or perhaps 100 years into the future. As a patient visits her surgeon for a consult, she passes through the office door and, just as scanning is performed today by airport security, she has multiple imaging modalities scanning her (perhaps CT, MRI, ultrasound, and infrared). The data are all collected and then displayed as a 3-D image of her (looking like the Visible Human) but with not only correct anatomic structure but also all the biochemical and other data added to the correct organ systems. If an abnormality is seen, such as a colon mass, a virtual colonoscopy can be done on the image by flying through the colon with the same view as an actual colonoscopy. If a lesion is found, the image can be used for patient education, illustrating to the patient exactly what her specific problem is. At the time of surgery, an image can be imported onto the video monitor of laparoscopic colon resection, and with data fusion the two images displayed simultaneously as an intraoperative navigation tool (stereotactic navigation). At the postoperative follow up visit, the patient is scanned again, by comparing the postoperative with the preoperative datasets and using digital subtraction techniques, the difference between the two datasets is automatic outcomes analysis. Because the record is a dataset, it can be stored on a credit card (the U.S. military is using a prototype card called the MARC card) or kept on a Web server to be distributed worldwide over the Internet for consultation. The purpose of the this scenario is to provide an explanation of and rationale for why it is so important to understand how information can empower us, to show the looking glass through which the next-generation surgeon will be viewing the world. To bring the scenario out of the speculative and rhetorical and into the real world, the technologies that these views are presented in this chapter must be held accountable to the scrutiny of science. Only when these new discoveries are properly evaluated with rigorous testing and clinical trials can ...
