BACKGROUND During general anesthesia, hypnotic components have been monitored with electroencephalogram. The bispectral index is derived from a cortical electroencephalogram, but the A-line ARX index is the electroencephalographic response to auditory stimuli. The purpose of this study was to compare the changes of the A-line ARX index and the bispectral index during sevoflurane - nitrous oxide anesthesia. METHODS One hundred females aged 30-60 years, and scheduled for partial mastectomy… CONTINUE READING
