  • BACKGROUND The relationship between measures of drug effect such as bispectral index (BIS) and end-tidal (ET) levels of anaesthetic agents is described by the 'effect site equilibrium half-time', t(1/2)(ke0). There are limited data available on sevoflurane t(1/2)(ke0) during routine anaesthesia and surgery. Preliminary observations suggested t(1/2)(ke0) for the degree of hypnosis as estimated by BIS is different from that for burst suppression of the electroencephalograph, occurring at 'deep… CONTINUE READING
