Examining nonlinear bi-variate time series for pattern synchrony has been largely carried out by the cross sample entropy measure, X-SampEn, which is highly bound by parametric restrictions. Threshold parameter r is the one that limits X-SampEn estimations most adversely. An inappropriate r choice leads to erroneous synchrony detection, even for the case of X-SampEn analysis on simple synthetically generated signals like the MIX(P) process. This gives us an intimation of how difficult it would be for such synchrony measures to handle the more complex physiologic data. The recently introduced concept of entropy profiling has been proved to release such measures from the clutches of r dependen..
