Novel indicators based on distance measures are developed and compared to quantify changes in electroencephalogram signal resulting from hypoxic- asphyxic injury. An injury index is derived based on the measures. The Itakura distance-based index is found to have the highest correlation with the long-term outcome as measured by the neurological deficit scores.
