This example models a positive-pressure medical ventilator system. It provides a starting point for designers working on ventilators. It shows how to interface a real-time controller and a system model, how to define a real-time controller in Simulink® and Stateflow™, and how a full system model supports the design process. The model includes the patient’s lungs and trachea, the ventilator device with valves and tubes, and a pressure-targeted ventilator controller.
