I'm working on a Phd related to electro-mechanical ventilator control for people with lung disease.
The main problem is the interaction between the patient and the machine. I'm sure that this is not a new problem, but I dont know where to look or the terminology used for this type of work.
I've looked at adaptive/fuzzy/neural networks but have yet to find a method that can be applied to provide a better solution.
Can anyone recommend any formal ways of looking at this problem that I can research.
