The cerebral state index (CSI) is used for monitoring EEG and depth of anaesthesia. The objective of this study was to analyse the correlation between ocular reflexes, CSI and estimated propofol plasma concentrations (PropCP) in dogs during induction of anaesthesia with propofol. Fourteen dogs were premedicated with acepromazine 0.05 mg kg(-1) IM.(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation between the cerebral state index (CSI) and the estimated propofol plasma concentrations in dogs during induction of anaesthesia. Fifteen healthy dogs undergoing scheduled routine surgical procedures were enrolled in this study. Target controlled infusion (TCI) software, based on the pharmacokinetic model(More)
Propofol total intravenous anesthesia should provide stability of the cardiovascular system. In this study, mean arterial pressure and heart rate were evaluated in eight healthy dogs anesthetized with increasing rates of propofol. The cerebral state index (CSI) was studied as an additional parameter. Although the estimated propofol plasma concentration(More)
The well-known Cerebral State Index (CSI) quantifies depth of anesthesia and is traditionally modeled with Hill equation and propofol effect-site concentration (Ce). This work brings out two novelties: introduction of electromyogram (EMG) and use of fuzzy logic models with ANFIS optimized parameters. The data were collected from dogs (n=27) during routine(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate if the cerebral state index (CSI), measured by a Cerebral State Monitor (CSM), can predict depth of anaesthesia as assessed clinically or by estimated propofol plasma concentrations. STUDY DESIGN Prospective clinical study. ANIMALS Fourteen mixed breed dogs, weighing 24.5 ± 4.7 kg, scheduled to undergo neutering procedures. (More)
The Cerebral State Index (CSI) is an electroencephalogram derived signal representing the depression of central nervous activity produced by anesthetic drugs. In this study, a nonlinear model was developed to describe the CSI tendency during general anesthesia in dogs, by evaluating the effect of the anesthetic drug propofol. The model was based on a(More)
The performance of the cerebral state index (CSI) in reflecting different levels of isoflurane anaesthesia was evaluated in ten cats subjected to four end-tidal isoflurane concentrations (EtIso), each maintained for 15 minutes (0.8%, 1.2%, 1.6%, or 2.0% EtIso). The CSI, hemodynamic data, ocular reflexes, and eye position were recorded for each EtIso(More)
Target-controlled infusion (TCI) anesthesia using target effect-site concentration rather than plasma concentration provides less drug consumption, safer anesthesia, less undesired side effects and improved animal welfare. The aim of this study was to calculate the constant that converts propofol plasma into effect-site concentration (k(e0)) in dogs, and to(More)
This work presents the development of a software for data acquisition and control (ASYS) on a clinical setup. Similar to the industrial Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) the software assembles a Target Controlled Infusion (TCI) monitoring and supervisory control data in real time from devices in a surgical room. The software is not a full(More)
Hypnotic drug administration causes alterations in the electroencephalogram (EEG) in a dose-dependent manner. These changes cannot be identified easily in the raw EEG, therefore EEG based indices were adopted for assessing depth of anaesthesia (DoA). This study examines several indices for estimating dogs' DoA. Data (EEG, clinical end-points) were collected(More)
