anesthetic depth

an·es·thet·ic depth

the degree of central nervous system depression produced by a general anesthetic agent; a function of potency of the anesthetic and the concentration in which it is administered.

Since then, the bispectral index (BIS) monitor was developed through extensive research to numerically assess the degree of anesthetic depth of patients.
Measuring anesthetic depth has always been a substantial necessity, even from the beginning of anesthesia with ether in 1847.

The relatively low blood/gas partition coefficient of sevoflurane also provides for both rapid induction and emergence from anesthesia and more rapid control of anesthetic depth while its non-pungency makes mask induction possible in adults.
Limitations: Estimating the anesthetic depth by changes mediated by autonomic nervous system (e.

Among the chapter topics are the relevance of sleep neurobiology for cognitive neuroscience and anesthesiology, the neurobiology of consciousness, memory formation during general anesthesia, monitoring anesthetic depth, and three chapters on the psychological, philosophical, and medicolegal consequences of intraoperative awareness.
61) Any time paralytic drugs are used in surgery, the necessity of adequately maintained anesthesia is that much more important, as the drugs restrict the patient's ability to verbally communicate sensation, or physically respond to assessments of anesthetic depth.
