NUNES, Rogean Rodrigues et al. Bispectral index and other processed parameters of electroencephalogram: an update. Rev. Bras. Anestesiol. [online]. 2012, vol.62, n.1, pp. 111-117. ISSN 0034-7094. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-70942012000100014.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The processed analysis of electroencephalogram became extremely important to monitor nervous system, being used to obtain a better anesthetic adequacy. The objective was to conduct a review about each processed parameter, defining its real importance. CONTENT: A review was conducted showing mathematical, physical and clinical aspects as well as their correlations and updates, presenting new integrated parameters. CONCLUSIONS: An adequate analysis of processed parameters of electroencephalogram may provide more intraoperative safety as well as result in a better outcome for the patient
