Electroencephalogram (EEG) in General Anaesthesia - More Than Only a Bispectral Index (BIS)

2019-10-02 07:21:46 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Processed electroencephalogram (EEG) monitors are routinely used in addition to clinical parameters to assess the depth of anaesthesia during general anaesthesia.

Description

Processed electroencephalogram (EEG) monitors are routinely used in addition to clinical parameters to assess the depth of anaesthesia during general anaesthesia. In addition to the bispectral (BIS) index displayed as an index, the raw frontal EEG can be displayed as a curve on these monitors. After a short training, anaesthetists might be more accurate and faster in assessing depth of anaesthesia by recognizing the pattern of the EEG curve than by using the BIS index. This may further enhance the positive effects that could be demonstrated for the use of BIS monitors.

Therefore, the aim of the investigator's study is to investigate the clinical relevance of interpreting the raw frontal EEG in addition to only using the BIS index for titrating intravenous anaesthetics.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Hospital unit providing continuous monitoring of the patient following anesthesia.

The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.

Measurement or recording of contraction activity of the uterine muscle. It is used to determine progress of LABOR, OBSTETRIC and assess status of pregnancy. It is also used in conjunction with FETAL MONITORING to determine fetal response to stress of maternal uterine contractions.

Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.
