Perfecting your art. Advancing patient care.
Make a difference in post-anesthesia outcomes.

You want the best outcomes for your patients. So, delivering just the right dose of anesthetic agent to personalize care is essential.

In a simple, configurable interface, the completely redesigned BIS™ Advance monitor helps you personalize anesthesia dosing to improve patient outcomes and support faster recovery.

Using less anesthesia can lead to faster extubation and faster discharge from the PACU for optimized patient throughput and a more efficient workflow.1


Meet The BIS™ Advance monitor

Simple to read — large, high-resolution touchscreen monitor

See the information you want — configurable data and settings

Quickly review readings — color-coordinated data


  1. EMG (electromyogram) shown in numerical and as a bar
  2. SQI (signal quality index)
  3. BIS™ value (with alarm range if programmed)
  4. SR (suppression ratio) percentage (with alarm limit if programmed)
  5. ST (suppression time) in minutes and seconds
  6. MF (median frequency)
  7. SEF (spectral edge frequency)
  8. Adjustable EEG amplitude scale and sweep speed
  9. Built-in troubleshooting guides
  10. Graphic display of BIS™ value and secondary variable
  11. High-resolution DSA (density spectral array)
  12. Two or four channel capabilities

Designed for more efficient workflow

  • Save time with data output protocols that enable connectivity to electronic medical records (EMRs).
  • Set system-wide default preferences to save time — no need to re-set every time.
  • Maintain continuous monitoring when moving between care settings.

  • The BIS™ monitoring system should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis or therapy and is intended only as an adjunct in patient assessment. Reliance on the BIS™ monitoring system alone for intraoperative anesthetic management is not recommended.
