Several different feedback controllers for the use in the operating theatre to support the anaesthetist in his routine tasks have been developed. The full functionality of the control algorithm has to be tested in a closed-loop manner before using it in the operating theatre. Physical models replacing the patient have restricted functionality. A simulator was developed using mathematical models of the pharmacokinetics and the pharmacodynamics of the administered anaesthetic drugs, allowing a simulation in a ”hardware- in-the-loop” sense. This simulator is used to train the involved anaesthetists on the controller system.
