Abstract:In cyber-physical-human medical environments, coordinating supervisory medical systems and medical staff to perform treatments in a correct sequence is essential for patient safety. The coordination of treatments should be automated with medical staff's approval to assist the prevention of medical errors. However, the changing of patient conditions and the non-deterministic nature of potential side effects of treatments pose significant challenges. In this paper, we propose a coordination protocol to enforce the correct execution sequence of performing treatment, regarding preconditions validation, side effects monitoring, and expected responses checking. Moreover, the proposed protocol dynamically adapts to the patient conditions and side effects of treatments in collaboration with medical staff. A simplified cardiac arrest is used as a case study to verify the safety and correctness properties of the proposed protocol.
