Electroencephalography (EEG) is an important clinical tool to capture sleep-wake cycling. It can also be used for grading injury, known as hypoxic-ischaemic encephalophathy (HIE), caused by lack of oxygen or blood to the brain during birth. Tracé alternant (TA) is a distinctive component of normal quiet sleep which consists of alternating periods of high-voltage activity (bursts) separated by lower-voltage activity (inter-bursts). This study presents an automated method to grade the severity of… Expand

Suitability of an inter-burst detection method for grading hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy in newborn EEG
This study assesses the suitability of an existing inter-burst detection method, developed from preterm infants born <30 weeks of gestational age, to detect inter-bursts in term infants and shows how simple measures of the inter- Burst interval can be used to classify different grades of injury.

Grading hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy in neonatal EEG with convolutional neural networks and quadratic time–frequency distributions
The proposed EEG HIE-grading system outperforms the state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms for EEG grade classification on a large multi-centre unseen dataset, indicating the potential to assist clinical decision making for neonates with HIE. Expand
Identifying tracé alternant activity in neonatal EEG using an inter-burst detection approach
These results validate how an inter-burst detection approach combined with post processing can be used to classify TA activity, and help quantify disruption of the clinically important sleep—wake cycle. Expand
Grading the severity of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy in newborn EEG using a convolutional neural network
Results show how a feature-free approach can be used to classify different grades of injury in newborn EEG with comparable accuracy to existing feature-based systems. Expand
An Automated System for Grading EEG Abnormality in Term Neonates with Hypoxic-Ischaemic Encephalopathy
Automated analysis of the neonatal EEG has the potential to assist clinical decision making for neonates with hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy. This paper proposes a method of automatically gradingExpand
Grading hypoxic–ischemic encephalopathy severity in neonatal EEG using GMM supervectors and the support vector machine
The proposed automated HIE grading system can provide significant assistance to healthcare professionals in assessing the severity of HIE and its integration with other EEG analysis algorithms may improve neonatal neurocritical care. Expand
Improving Reliability of Monitoring Background EEG Dynamics in Asphyxiated Infants
The dIBI detection algorithm improves identification of neonates with good clinical outcome as compared to the classification based on the classical burst-suppression interburst interval and effectively discriminates challenging cases encountered within mild and moderate background abnormalities.

Early EEG Findings in Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy Predict Outcomes at 2 Years
Early EEG is a reliable predictor of outcome in HIE, and a normal or mildly abnormal EEG results within 6 hours after birth were associated with normal neurodevelopmental outcomes at 24 months. Expand
A convolutional neural network outperforming state-of-the-art sleep staging algorithms for both preterm and term infants.
The proposed convolutional neural network developed to perform 2- and 4-class sleep classification in neonates has the highest reported accuracy for EEG sleep state classification for both preterm and term age neonates. Expand
Automated EEG sleep staging in the term-age baby using a generative modelling approach.
This is the first study to present a successful method for the automated staging of four states in term-age sleep using multichannel EEG, and suggested a benefit in incorporating transition information using an HMM, and correcting for inter-recording variability through personalized feature scaling.
