Abstract

The solution to the problem of finding the depth of anesthesia or the level of unconsciousness by monitoring the EEG has proved to be elusive so far. This paper is an attempt to study whether the bispectrum analysis of the EEG of a dog reveals any trends with increasing depth of anesthesia. Of the four channels of EEG analyzed, channel 1(L1-L0) seemed to show a strong coupling between frequencies in the range 6-10 Hz around 78% of the time when the dog is asleep (depth = 1.0) and a weak or no coupling between frequencies in the same range around 67% of the time when the dog is awake (depth =0.0).
