Automated Drug Delivery in Anesthesia provides a full review of available tools and methods on the drug delivery of anesthesia, bridging the gap between academic development, research and clinical practice. The book takes an interdisciplinary approach, pulling information about tools developed in other disciplines such as mathematics, physics, biology and system engineering and applying them to drug delivery. The book's authors discuss the missing element of complete regulatory loop of anesthesia: the sensor and model for pain pathway assessment. This is the only book which focuses specifically on the delivery of anesthesia.

Key Features

  • Revisits the standard TCI anesthesia regulatory loop
  • Provides complementary measurement devices and protocols for hypnosis, analgesia and neuromuscular blockade (the three components for anesthesia)
  • Describes the link between existing and emerging tools


Graduates, PhD students, post docs, professors, researchers, practitioners and other scholars in multidisciplinary sciences (engineering and medicine), manufacturers, suppliers, researchers, research offices, socio-economic institutional and regulatory units, practitioners
