You can measure anesthesia depth with EEG. Access Medical Systems
has a machine that uses bicoherence to do so. I'll send thier 800
in my next post.
Thanks. Unfortunately, among other things, I am on the Aspect
(Access) Board of Advisors and a scientific and clinical consultant.
I performed their FDA PMA trial. My first post stands. EEG may wind
up being useful for sedation but it doesn't work in any meaningful
way for anesthesia.
