Measuring and reflecting depth of anesthesia using wavelet and power spectral density

Nguyen-Ky, Tai and Wen, Peng (Paul) and Li, Yan and Gray, Robert (2011) Measuring and reflecting depth of anesthesia using wavelet and power spectral density. IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine, 15 (4). pp. 630-639. ISSN 1089-7771


This paper evaluates depth of anesthesia (DoA)monitoring
using a new index. The proposed method preconditions raw
EEG data using an adaptive threshold technique to remove spikes and low-frequency noise. We also propose an adaptive window length technique to adjust the length of the sliding window. The information pertinent to DoA is then extracted to develop a feature function using discrete wavelet transform and power spectral density. The evaluation demonstrates that the new index reflects the patient’s transition fromconsciousness to unconsciousness with the induction of anesthesia in real time.
