BIS™ monitoring to help improve anesthesia-related outcomes

With the BISx™ OEM module from Medtronic, BIS™ brain monitoring technology can be easily integrated into medical devices in a wide range of healthcare settings—from acute care monitors in operating rooms and intensive care units to preconfigured devices in ambulatory surgery centers or procedural sedation locations.

When you integrate the BISx™ OEM module into your anesthesia and sedation monitoring systems, you can offer your customers the industry’s most widely studied and published level of consciousness monitoring parameter. BIS™ technology can provide insight into the direct and patient-specific effects of anesthesia on the brain to enhance perioperative outcomes.


BIS™ brain monitoring technology advantages

Based on the scientifically validated BIS™ algorithm, BIS™ brain monitoring technology uses innovative technology to link patient-specific EEG information to the individual clinical state of each patient.

Clinical benefits of BIS™ brain monitoring technology

Anesthesia-related clinical benefits include:

  • Up to 23% decrease in anesthetic drug use1
  • Up to 40% faster wake-up time2
  • Faster recovery and extubation times3
  • 87% increase in “excellent/fully oriented” status on PACU admission4
  • 32% faster eligibility for PACU discharge5
  • 80% lower incidence of intraoperative6,7,8,9 awareness with recall in adults
  • Improved patient satisfaction10

How advanced BIS™ technology works

  • Raw EEG data are obtained through one of several specially designed BIS™ sensors placed on the patient’s forehead.
  • The BIS™ sensor non-invasively collects the raw EEG data that indicates the multifaceted electrical activity of the brain in real time.
  • The scientifically validated BIS™ algorithm then filters, analyzes and correlates this data, quantifying only the change in the bispectrum and other EEG features that apply to the individual’s current clinical state.
  • The results are continually consolidated and displayed as the clinically validated BIS™ index, a number between 0 and 100 that indicate the patient’s response to anesthetic agents.
