About this webinar

In association with: 

Login will be available from 17:45, but the broadcast will not start until 18:00.

All clinicians know what they mean by ‘depth of anaesthesia’, but are we guessing the patient is “asleep” and hoping all is well? The NAP5 report highlighted that limitations do exist in standard clinical care and produced recommendations of how care could be improved. 

Research shows that ‘general anaesthesia’ is highly complex, and far from a clear-cut awake/asleep binary condition that many clinicians believe. Information derived from EEG monitoring during sedation/anaesthesia and neurophysiology/neuroimaging studies confirms this complexity.

Clinicians want certainty from monitoring devises to make relevant decisions, but this seminar will explain why such confidence is unavailable if using pEEG in a “follow the number” manner. The purpose of this seminar is to give a clinically orientated guide to effective use of pEEG devices during general anaesthesia. The use of such devices in critical care environments will not be addressed.
