Abstract

The EEG signal provides relevant information about the functional status of CNS. Its usefulness in monitoring the anesthesia level has been repeatedly demonstrated (1) (2) (3) since 1937. More recently automatic analysis techniques (4) (5) have been successfully introduced, providing a quantitative evaluation of the main EEG parameters during anesthesia, but they have not become routinary in most of the clinical applications.
