Visible to the public  FDA Public Workshop - Physiological Closed-Loop Controlled Devices
Oct 13, 2015 8:00 am - Oct 14, 2015 4:30 pm EDT

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has held a public Workshop entitled "Physiological Closed-Loop Controlled (PCLC) Devices." The topic discussed was challenges related to the design, development, and evaluation of critical care PCLC devices. FDA considers PCLC devices an emerging technology and held a workshop focusing on design, development and performance evaluation of PCLC systems intended for use in critical care environments. Such devices included closed-loop anesthetic delivery, closed-loop vasoactive drug and fluid delivery, and closed-loop mechanical ventilation.

With recent advances in low-power low-cost communication, sensing, and actuation technologies, Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) have revolutionized automated medical diagnostics and care, building energy management, and smart grids. With this revolution, dawns a new era of CPS monitoring where fusing measurements from multiple devices provides unprecedented early detection of critical events. However, in some applications (e.g. medical diagnostics) explicit models and/or rich training data relating available measurements to events are unavailable or impractical.
