- ÍtemReducing glucose variability due to meals and postprandial exercise in TI DM using switched LPV control: in silico studies(2016)"Time-varying dynamics is one of the main issues for achieving safe blood glucose control in type I diabetes mellitus (TI DM) patients. In addition, the typical disturbances considered for controller design are meals, which increase the glucose level, and physical activity (PA), which increases the subject's sensitivity to insulin. In previous works the authors have applied a linear parameter-varying (LPV) control technique to manage unannounced meals."
- ÍtemSwitched LPV glucose control in type 1 diabetes(2016-06)"The purpose of this work is to regulate the blood glucose level in Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) patients with a practical and flexible procedure that can switch amongst a finite number of distinct controllers, depending on the user´s choice."
- ÍtemNon-pharmaceutical intervention to reduce COVID-19 impact in Argentina(2021-06-21)"This work is focused on the multilevel control of the population confinement in the city of Buenos Aires and its surroundings due to the pandemic generated by the COVID-19 outbreak. The model used here is known as SEIRD and two objectives are sought: a time-varying identification of the infection rate and the inclusion of a controller. A control differential equation has been added to regulate the transitions between confinement and normal life, according to five different levels. The plasma treatment from recovered patients has also been considered in the control algorithm. Using the proposed strategy the ICU occupancy is reduced, and as a consequence, the number of deaths is also decreased."
- ÍtemAutomated detection and quantification of reverse triggering efort under mechanical ventilation(2021-02-15)"Reverse triggering (RT) is a dyssynchrony defned by a respiratory muscle contraction following a passive mechanical insufation. It is potentially harmful for the lung and the diaphragm, but its detection is challenging. Magnitude of efort generated by RT is currently unknown. Our objective was to validate supervised methods for automatic detection of RT using only airway pressure (Paw) and fow. A secondary objective was to describe the magnitude of the eforts generated during RT."
