Physiologic Control
10101031030700Physiologic ControlWe consider that an operating point in physiological feedback results from the equilibrium between a system and its control. The models for control of circulation and spontaneous breathing, presented in this chapter, are based on linearization of the relationship between the controlled variable (e.g., mean arterial pressure) and the control effector (e.g., heart rate) in the operating point. The static models consist of piecewise linear receptor functions, control gains, and saturations on the control effectors. Complete mathematical models for both control systems are presented.One of the benefits of feedback control is that it all…
