Abstract

This paper explores the correlation between blood pressure fluctuations and the severity of Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE). Via isolating particular frequency bands of blood pressure signal and calculating their power, the researcher was able to discern patients with different HIE severity and verified the assumption that less fluctuation in blood pressure is correlated with more severe brain injury. Furthermore, the researcher attempted to construct a prediction algorithm based on power within certain frequency bands of the blood pressure signal.
