After proving the utility of the system in a variety of situations within PGI, the investigators decided to test the system at different medical institutions in India.
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 done in six participating 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.
PGI plans to also further other projects to design and develop automated systems for the perioperative and critical care drug delivery in order to fine tune the effects of potent lifesaving drugs during anaesthesia and intensive care.
