A Novel Approach to Study the Effects of Anesthesia on Respiratory Signals by using the EEG Signals

Mohd Suhaib Kidwai, S. Hasan Saeed


General anesthesia plays a crucial role in many surgical procedures, and it therefore has an enormous impact on human health. There are no precise measures for maintaining the correct dose of anesthetic, and there is currently no fully reliable instrument to monitor depth of anesthesia. In this paper, a novel approach has been proposed for detecting the changes in synchronism of brain signals, taken from EEG machine. During the effect of anesthesia, there are certain changes in the EEG signals. Those signals show changes in their synchronism. This phenomenon of synchronism can be utilized to study the effect of anesthesia on respiratory parameters like respiration rate etc, and hence the quantity of anesthesia can be regulated, and if any problem occurs in breathing during the effect of anesthesia on patient, that can also be monitored.
