Bispectral EEG index monitoring of high-dose nitrous oxide and low-dose sevoflurane sedation.


This single-blind controlled clinical study characterized the effects of 30-70% nitrous oxide (N2O) and 0.2-0.8% sevoflurane conscious sedation on quantitative electroencephalographic (EEG) readings of 22 healthy dental students as measured by the bispectral index (BIS).
