Use of cerebral monitoring during anaesthesia: effect on recovery profile.

Abstract

This review article examines the effect of cerebral monitoring using an EEG-based device [i.e. bispectral index (BIS), patient state analyzer (PSA), auditory evoked potential (AEP), cerebral state index (CSI), or entropy] on titration of anaesthetic, analgesic and cardiovascular drugs during surgery. In addition, articles discussing the effects of these cerebral monitoring devices on recovery profiles following general anaesthesia, postoperative side effects, and anaesthetic costs are reviewed.
