Signal Processing and Control: From Sleep Apnea to Automated Anesthesia
Dr Guy A. Dumont, University of British Columbia, Vancouver
This talk will describe a number of key projects undertaken by the Electrical and Computer Engineering for Medicine (ECEM) and the Paediatric Anesthesia Research team (PART) at the University of British Columbia. The commonality between those projects lies in the use of advanced signal processing and control for clinical applications. The applications span mobile health applications for use in both developed and developing word settings for pathologies such as pre-eclampsia, pneumonia and obstructive sleep apnea as well as automated drug delivery in critical care settings.
