Abstract: Medicine-engineering crossover refers to the cross-fertilization of multiple disciplines to meet clinical needs through various means, including engineering, which greatly promotes medical development. In the development of anesthesiology, improvements in anesthesia equipment and continuous innovation of anesthesia technology are all closely related to the integration of medicine and engineering. In recent years, the exploration and development of automated anesthesia equipment has led to closer integration of medicine, engineering, and other disciplines, including the development of robots in anesthesia, automated monitoring and alarm technology,automated perioperative management, and remote anesthesia. Herein, the current status of applications and development of medicine-engineering crossover in the field of automated anesthesia are discussed.

Key words: medicine-engineering crossover| automation| anesthesia| robotics
