UNLABELLED The baseline value of the Bispectral Index (BIS) is 96-99 in the awake state. Patients with Alzheimer's disease or vascular dementia may show an increase in slow wave and a decrease in fast wave activity of the electroencephalogram (EEG). BIS is presumed to decrease with EEG slowing. We hypothesized that the baseline "awake" BIS is lower in dementia than in normal elderly patients. We studied 36 patients with Alzheimer's disease or multiinfarct dementia and 36 control patients aged… CONTINUE READING
