Project: Optimisation of the titration of peri-operative analgesics by using the signal-variability of the bispectral index (BIS) EEG parameter.

project duration
01-DEC-01 – 30-NOV-02
In an earlier project, the optimisation of computer-controlled administration of a hypnotic drug (propofil) was realised by using the absolute BIS value, a 'depth of anesthesia' indicator (=closed-loop for hypnotics). In this project, the variability of this BIS signal versus time will be used to optimise the titration of analgesics during closed-loop administration of hypnotics.
