Development for the Evaluation Index of an Anesthesia Depth using the Bispectrum Analysis
The linear SEF (Spectral Edge Frequency) parameter
and spectrum analysis method can not reflect the non-linear of EEG.
This method can not contribute to acquire real time analysis and obtain
a high confidence in the clinic due to low discrimination. To solve the
problems, the development of a new index is carried out using the
bispectrum analyzing the EEG(electroencephalogram) including the
non-linear characteristic. After analyzing the bispectrum of the 2
dimension, the most significant power spectrum density peaks appeared abundantly at the specific area in awakening and anesthesia state. These points are utilized to create the new index since many
peaks appeared at the specific area in the frequency coordinate. The measured range of an index was 0-100. An index is 20-50 at an anesthesia, while the index is 90-60 at the awake. New index could afford to effectively discriminate the awake and anesthesia state.
