BIS sensor

BIS sensor

A sensor used to evaluate the depth of sedation during surgery, which is used with an Aspect Medical Systems-approved A-1050 EEG monitor to acquire signals that determine the bispectral index (see there), a measurement of the effects of anaesthetics on the brain.

After skin preparation with isopropyl alcohol, a bilateral BIS sensor was placed in a standard frontal bipolar montage with a ground electrode placed at the inner junction of the left eyebrow and four electrodes placed symmetrically on the participants' forehead (two on each temporal area and two above each eyebrow) allowing recording of four EEG channels.
Used with the recently released BIS Pediatric Sensor or BIS Sensor XP, the new BIS XP monitoring systems offer increased resistance to electrocautery artifact, enhanced performance in deep anesthetic states, and improved robustness to interference from noise sources, such as high-frequency motion artifact which occurs in the operating room and intensive care unit.
The technology works by placing a BIS sensor on a patient's forehead to obtain information from electrical brain activity, or EEG.
An XP 2000 BIS platform was used and a paediatric Quattro BIS sensor placed in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
The new products include the BIS Pediatric Sensor, the BIS Sensor XP, and the BIS Module Kit.
The BIS sensor was applied to the forehead and right temporal area.
As Aspect introduces its BIS Sensor Plus platform technology, the new manufacturing line is designed to seamlessly ramp up to produce future sensors, which are expected to be customized for specialty patient populations, like children, and a variety of anesthetic environments, such as the critical care environment," stated Jeff Barrett, vice-president of manufacturing and operations for Aspect.

Next Generation BIS Sensor Design is Easier-to-Use, Offers
Aspect will also present a 510(k) pending bilateral BIS sensor at the ASA meeting that is designed for a four-channel frontal electroencephalogram (EEG).
The rear side camera boasts a gamut of features like BIS sensors, HDR, Dual shot, 360-degree Drama shot, Sound and Shot (user can place audio recording inside a still-photo) and many more.
As asymmetry of BIS values was anticipated because of his unilateral intracranial lesion, bilateral BIS monitoring was performed using two paediatric BIS sensors and two BIS-VISTA[TM] A-3000 monitors, version 3.
