Use of spectral entropy monitoring in reducing the quantity of sevoflurane as sole inhalational anesthetic and in decreasing the need for antihypertensive drugs in total knee replacement surgery.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The use of spectral entropy for monitoring the depth of anesthesia or level of hypnosis in surgery or painful procedures can reduce the consumption of drugs and shorten the recovery time of total intravenous anesthesia such as by propofol. The aim of this study was to investigate: (1) the consumption of sevoflurane as the sole anesthetic; and (2… (More)
