Abstract: Phase-rectified signal averaging (PRSA) has been known to be a useful method to detect periodicities in non-stationary biological signals. Determination of quasi-periodicities in electroencephalogram (EEG) is a candidate for quantifying the changes of depth of anesthesia (DOA). In this paper, DOA monitoring capacity of periodicities detected using PRSA were quantified by assessing EEG signals collected from 56 patients during surgery. The method is compared to sample entropy (SampEn), detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) and permutation entropy (PE). The performance of quasi-periodicities defined by acceleration capacity (AC) and deceleration capacity (DC) was tested using the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC) and Pearson correlation coefficient. During the surgery, a significant difference (p < 0.05) in the quasi-periodicities was observed among three different stages under general anesthesia. There is a larger mean AUC and correlation coefficient of quasi-periodicities compared to SampEn, DFA and PE using expert assessment of conscious level (EACL) and bispectral index (BIS) as the gold standard, respectively. Quasi-periodicities detected using PRSA in EEG signals are powerful monitor of DOA and perform more accurate and robust results compared to SampEn, DFA and PE. The results do provide a valuable reference to researchers in the filed of clinical applications.
