Analysis of the Behavior of the Artificial Pancreas

  • Jhon Gómez Portilla, Ruben Hernández, Oscar F. Avilés


Diabetes mellitus is a pathology that does not allow the body to adequately regulate glucose levels, causing hyperglycemia (excessive levels of sugar in the blood). In the pancreas there is a group of cells known as beta cells, managers for synthesizing the hormone insulin, in order to regulate glucose. There are various factors that affect these cells and for this reason there are deficiencies in the insulin levels required by the human body. Among the current alternatives to supply the need for insulin in diabetic patients, there are subcutaneous injections and external infusion pumps, however, these methods do not offer the desired metabolic control and generate discomfort in patients. In recent years, the concept of artificial pancreas has become very important, which seeks to assimilate to a high degree the biological pancreas and solve the drawbacks presented by current mechanisms. Under the previous premise in this review, the most current developments regarding these biomedical systems were sought and described.
