UNLABELLED Prolonged use of sedative drugs frequently leads to oversedation of intensive care patients. Clinical assessment scales are not reliable in deeply sedated patients. Parameters obtained from spectral and bispectral analysis of electroencephalogram (EEG) records have been combined to create an index (BIS) to monitor anesthesia depth. The role of such parameters in monitoring the depth of the sedation in intensive care unit (ICU) patients has yet to be determined. We designed the… CONTINUE READING
