Signal processing for monitoring cerebral hemodynamics in neonates (2013)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
Disturbances in cerebral hemodynamics are one of the principal causes of cerebral damage in premature infants. Speciﬁcally, changes in cerebral blood ﬂow might cause ischemia or hemorrhage that can lead to motor and developmental disabilities. Under normal circumstances, there are several mechanisms that act jointly to preserve cerebral hemodynamics homeostasis. However, in case that one of these mechanisms is disrupted the brain is exposed to damage. Premature infants are susceptible to variations in cerebral circulation due to their fragility. Therefore, monitoring cerebral hemodynamics is of vital importance in order to prevent brain damage in this population and avoid subsequent sequelae. This thesis is oriented to the development of signal processing techniques that can be of ... toggle 8 keywordsnonlin – DSP – numalg – sysid – canonical correlationsmatrix decompositionsvdwavelets – biomedical signal processingnirssignal separation – subspace system identificationtime series analysis – SVM
