Monitors, Bedside, Electroencephalography, Level-of-Consciousness

Definition : Bedside electroencephalography (EEG) monitors designed to continuously measure the brain activity and translate and display its value as a numerical index; they may also process and display EEG waveforms and/or density spectral arrays. These monitors typically consist of a patient cable including disposable EEG electrodes; a unit including an analog to digital converter and a computerized processing module; and a display. Level of consciousness monitors are mostly intended to help in the evaluation of the brain state changes (e.g., depth of anesthesia) in response to drug dose during surgery; their use may reduce the quantity of anesthetic agents required and accelerate the release of patients from the post anesthesia care units.
