Abstract:

A recent study 1 suggests that, under certain circumstances, concordant changes in cerebral intravascular oxygenation and mean arterial blood pressure reflect impaired cerebrovascular autoregulation. In this paper, we propose a new measure to quantitate this concordance, derived front the common subspace of these signals. The method is compared to correlation and conference analysis with respect to our application, but it is also suited for other biomedical signals. Furthermore, this model-based approach is not restricted to applications involving only 2 signals.
