The Bispectral Index (BIS) is based on a great amount of data accumulated from Electroencephalographic (EEG) studies of the normal human brain. It was designed to measure the effects of anesthetics on the brain via a computerized analysis using EEG to monitor the depth of consciousness in anesthetized patients. The BIS is a new system for monitoring the depth of anesthesia induced consciousness. This analysis is used to guide an individualized anesthetic protocol wherein the sedative dosage may be adjusted. The BIS may thus make monitoring the depth of anesthesia-induced consciousness much safer, simpler and more accurate. It is thus important that the Bispectral Index (BIS) is more accurate than classic EEG monitoring.
