Expressindia reports on a closed loop anaesthesia delivery system (CLADS) which controls anaesthetic drug delivery automatically based on the feedback of its effect on the patient.

The device has been developed at PGI under a project funded by the Department of Information Technology, New Delhi. The device has also been patented and recently underwent a multicentre evaluation at 6 hospitals.

The computer controlled anaesthesia has been used in PGI for open heart surgeries, major non-cardiac surgeries and also in high altitude. This system has been patented in the US, Europe and India. They say that CLADS would help save the time spent on adjusting the depth of anaesthesia and enable the clinician to devote his time on other interventions.

The project ‘Multi-centric Evaluation of Closed Loop Anaesthesia Delivery System’ was approved by the Department of Information Technology (DIT) in December 2008. This was undertaken by 6 centers, including at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi, the Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32, Chandigarh, the Dayanand Medical College and Hospital in Ludhiana, SNM Hospital, Leh, GMCH, Patiala and at PGIMER, Chandigarh. The study was completed in November 2012.
