Abstract

The paper gives a short system engineering review on the treatment of diabetes covering control engineering and mathematical modeling issues. The Artificial Pancreas (AP) concept is discussed together with the Intensive Care (ICU) idea for automatic treatment of diabetic patients. This highly interdisciplinary concept involves beyond medical sciences, control engineering and biomedical engineering knowledge. Having already developed continuous glucose sensor devices and highly performant insulin pumps, the automatic control concept could be an efficient solution for millions of people living with diabetes for accurate metabolic conditions management.
