Abstract

Tracking of a desired pressure profile is key in mechanical ventilation to sufficiently support a patient. The aim of this paper is to improve pressure tracking performance of mechanical ventilation systems. This is achieved by explicitly taking into account the nonlinear hose characteristics and delays in the control strategy. Through an experimental case study it is shown that this can significantly improve tracking performance.
