measure the twitches.
Different types of measuring:
3 main stimulation patterns that need to be included in the design:
Train-of-Four (TOF) Stimulation
Pattern of electrical stimulation and evoked muscle response before and after injection of neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBA).
Vout = Vin * (0.09 * P + 0.04) ± ERROR
where P = pressure in kPa
