Several studies have suggested that monitoring the depth of anaesthesia might prevent the development of postoperative cognitive decline. We aimed to conduct a meta-analysis to investigate the effects of bispectral index (BIS) monitoring in anaesthesia.

A dual-loop controller permits the automated titration of propofol and remifentanil during anesthesia; it has never been used in intensive care after cardiac surgery. The goal of this preliminary stud...
Cerebrovascular risk factors (CVRFs) and comorbid cardiovascular and metabolic disease have been linked to accelerated cognitive aging and dementia in the general population; however, the contribution...
Postoperative delirium and postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) are common after cardiac surgery and contribute to an increased risk of postoperative complications, longer length of stay, and in...
Postoperative cognitive decline (pCD) occurs frequently (6 to 30%) after carotid endarterectomy (CEA), although there are no exact estimates and risk factors are still unclear.
Identifying individuals at risk for cognitive decline, Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), and dementia due to Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a critical need. Functional decline is associated with risk and ...

This randomized study investigates the benefits of an additional Bispectral Index monitoring of depth of sedation during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography. A bispectral ind...
This study was conducted in two parts: 1. This first part was designed to determine thiopentone dose requirement for induction of anaesthesia with and without the use of Bispectral...
Electroencephalographic-based monitoring systems such as the bispectral index (BIS) may reduce anaesthetic overdose rates. The investigators hypothesised that goal-directed sevoflurane adm...
This study was aimed to determine whether narcotrend monitoring was better than bispectral index monitoring during sufentanil-midazolam anesthesia for bronchoscopy under conscious sedation...

Unexplained neurologic condition characterized by episodes of atonic seizures, convulsions or staring spells with further cognitive decline.
Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.

A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.
