Cochrane review of BIS monitoring

This Cochrane review of BIS monitoring during anaesthesia examined the results of twenty studies. It found that BIS guided anaesthesia reduced the dose requirement of anaesthetic drugs, reduced time to extubation and eye opening, and reduced the time to discharge from the PACU. It did not reduce the time to be ready for home readiness. There was a reduction in awareness in high risk patients.
