The applicability and performance of spectral entropy as a measure of the depth of sedation was studied by comparison to the Richmond sedation and agitation scale (RASS). A biopotential signal was measured from the forehead of eight ICU patients. From this biopotential four different frequency bands were defined using trend fitting to the low and high… CONTINUE READING
