Summary
Brief summary
Current cortical EEG based depth of anaesthesia monitors do not accurately reflect the effect
of opioid drugs. We have developed a new theoretically-based method of analysing the EEG. Our
hypothesis is that this new method will more accurately predict depth of anaesthesia than the
Bispectral Index (BIS) monitor in patients having elective surgery.
