DOENICKE 3 ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAM BISPECTRAL ANALYSIS DURING TIVA ANAESTHESIA 3 Institute for Anesthesiology, Ludwig-Maximilians University, Munich; 2 Martin Luther University, Halle, Germany; 1 Institute for Anesthesiology, Karol Marcinkowski University of Medical Sciences in Poznań, Poland Summary KEY WORDS: Intravenous anesthetics: propofol and etomidate-lipuro, Depth of anaesthesia: Biapectral Index, Ambulatory anaesthesia The Bispectral Index (BIS) is a processed EEG parameter that has been validated as a measure of the sedative-hypnotic effects of anaesthetic drugs. Previous studies have suggested that bispectral index (BIS) monitoring can reduce anaesthetic usage. This study was undertaken to establish if its use could reduce anaesthetic costs. Forty-four patients were randomly assigned to receive TIVA with remifentanil and either propofol (Group I) or etomidate-lipuro (Group II). Each group was divieded in two subgroups: subgroup BIS-Monitored and subgroup Pre-BIS. During surgery, in BIS subgroups (BIS-Monitored), drugs were titrated to keep BIS level between 40 and 60, while in the standard groups (Pre-BIS ) drugs were titrated according to clinical parameters. BIS monitoring decreases both etomidate and propofol consumption, when compared to anaesthesia without BIS. BISPEKTRALNA ANALIZA ENCEFALOGRAFICZNA W CZASIE ZNIECZULENIA CAŁKOWICIE DOŻYLNEGO Streszczenie SŁOWA KLUCZOWE: anestetyki dożylne: propofol i etomidat-lipuro; głębokość znieczu- lenia: wskaźnik Bispectral Index, anestezja ambulatoryjna Monitorowanie poziomu znieczulenia za pomocą wskaźnika BIS (Bispectral Index) wykazało znaczną redukcję podawanych anestetyków podczas znieczulenia. Celem pracy było porównanie zużycia leków podczas znieczuleń całkowicie dożylnych (TIVA propofolowa v. TIVA etomidatowa) wykonywanych w trybie ambulatoryjnym przy sterowaniu głębokością znieczulenia za pomocą wskaźnika BIS. Badania przeprowadzono w randomizowanej grupie u 44 chorych obojga płci, przeznaczonych do krótkotrwałych ambulatoryjnych zabiegów chirurgicznych trwających nie dłużej niż jedną godzinę. Badania przeprowadzono w dwóch grupach: grupa I 22 chorych znieczulanych propofolem, grupa II 22 chorych znieczulanych etomidatem-lipuro. Ponadto każda z grup została podzielona na dwie podgrupy: podgrupa pierwsza Pre-BIS bez sterowania

2 778 Z. Żaba et al. poziomem znieczulenia za pomocą BIS-u oraz podgrupa druga Pre-BIS-Monitored w której głębokość znieczulenia kontrolowana była przy udziale BIS-u. Indukcję znieczulenia przeprowadzono podając: remifentanyl w dawce 1 µg/kg oraz albo etomidat w dawce 0,3 mg/kg lub propofol w dawce 2 mg/kg. Następnie chorych intubowano maską krtaniową. Dawki leków do podtrzymania znieczulenia dobierano na podstawie oceny tradycyjnej poziomu znieczulenia (w podgrupach Pre-BIS) oraz przy pomocy monitorowania wartości BIS-u (w podgrupach BIS-Monitored) i wynosiły one: dla etomidatu od 1 do 0,2 mg/kg/h, dla propofolu od 8 do 3 mg/kg/h oraz dla remifentanylu od 0,25 do 0,1 µg/kg/min. Dawki leków obniżano w podgrupach BIS-monitored do zalecanego zakresu wartości BIS stosowanego podczas znieczulenia, tj. pomiędzy 60 a 40. Monitorowanie głębokości znieczulenia za pomocą wskaźnika BIS umożliwia znaczne zmniejszenie dawek anestetyków (etomidatu o 30% i propofolu o 22%). Zastosowanie BIS-u spowodowało znaczne skrócenie czasu budzenia się pacjenta oraz czasu ekstubacji w grupie etomidatowej, BIS okazał się pożytecznym parametrem do zapewnienia większego bezpieczeństwa pacjentowi podczas znieczulenia. Indtroduction In clinical practice, indirect and non-specific signs are used for monitoring anaesthetic adequacy. These include haemodynamic, respiratory, muscular and autonomic signs. These measures do not indicate adequacy of anaesthesia in reliable manner. Direct monitoring of anaesthetic effect should be possible by EEG measurement. EEG information can be reduced, condensed and simplified, leading to single numbers. The bispectral index, derived from bispectral analysis of the EEG measures the hypnotic component of anesthesia, and is a very promising tool for measuring adequacy of anaesthesia [6, 8, 11, 15]. One of the more difficulty in clinical practice is to correlate depth of anesthesia and drugs administration. BIS monitoring has been demonstrated to reduce anesthetics usage [2, 3, 9, 16, 20]. The current study investigated the effect of using BIS monitoring on propofol and etomidate consumption. Methods After IRB (Ethical Committee) approval and written informed consent, 44 patients scheduled for day-case surgery expected to last less than 1 hour were enrolled in a double-blind, four-arm randomized study. One patient from propofol group was excluded from the study, because had shivering by induction and must be intubated. Patients were divided in two groups: Group I Propofol (n = 21) patients received propofol; Group II Etomidate-Lipuro (n = 22) patients received etomidatelipuro.

3 Electroencephalogram bispectral analysis during Tiva anaesthesia 779 Each group was divided in two subgroups: 1. Subgroup Pre-BIS drugs were titrated according to clinical parameters. 2. Subgroup BIS-Monitored drugs were titrated to keep BIS level between 40 and 60. For each groups demographics did not differ, only duration of surgery in propofol BIS- Monitored subgroup was 12 min. longer, as compared to Pre-BIS subgroup. Table I.

Anaesthesia was maintained with remifentanil (0,25 µg/kg/min) and either etomidate (1 mg/kg/h) or propofol (8 mg/kg/h) in subgroup 1. Doses of etomidate and propofol were reduced in subgroup 2 according to the EEG criterion 40 60% Bispectral Index. Noninvasive blood pressure monitoring, heart rate, oxygen saturation, end-tidal concentration of carbon dioxide (ETCO20), and EEG were recorded. Recovery outcomes (eye opening, name telling) were determined, that means time to eye opening and time to name telling. The BIS value was displayed and recorded using Aspect Medical System monitor. We used electrodes Zipprep which were applied to the forehead. Data were analyzed using Student t- and Wilcoxon tests, as appropriate P values < 0,05 were considered statistically significant. Dada are presented as mean ± SD. Results After anaesthetic induction occurred BIS decrease to 40 in etomidate group, and 50 in propofol group, after intubation the bispectral index had recovered to 60, maintenance of anaesthesia between BIS level 40 and

II). In group II consumption of etomidate decreased by 30%, as compared to standard group (Tab. III). In BIS-monitored group the time elapsed from cessation of anaesthetics to orientation decreased significantly. Recovery to eye opening was shorter in the etomidate Pre-BIS subgroup by 4,5 minutes (Tab. V). Our findings are consistent with the below studies with respect to anaesthetics consumption. Gan et al. [4] reported a randomized, controlled, blinded, multicenter trial using a standard propofol-alfentanil-nitrous oxide anaesthetic technique. Patients were randomized either to a blinded, standard practice group or to standard practice with BIS titration. Propofol infusions were adjusted by clinical observation in the standard practice group and by titration to BIS values of during maintenance in the unblinded group. The propofol infusion rate required for maintenance of anaesthe-

6 782 Z. Żaba et al. sia was decreased in the BIS group compared with the standard practice group. Time to extubation was 11,22 min in the control group and decreased to 7,27 min with BIS titration. This study demonstrated that hypnotic titration during anaesthetic maintenance can speed emergence and recovery from anaesthesia while reducing propofol use. Song et al. [17] studied female outpatients undergoing laparoscopic tubal ligation. Patients were randomly assigned to receive either desflurane or sevoflurane anaesthesia, or the anaesthesiologist was either unaware of BIS value (blinded) or used BIS (to value near 60) to titrate volatile anesthetic dose. Volatile anaesthetic usage decreased significantly by 30-38% compared with blinded controls. Time to extubation decreased from 6,5 min to 3,6 min for desflurane and from 7,7 min to 5,5 min for sevoflurane. Paventi et al. [12] studied 100 patients undergoing abdominal surgery randomly allocated to one of two groups of 50 each with or without BIS monitoring. In BIS group the consumption of sevoflurane decreased by 40% while the consumption of remifentanil decreased by 10%, as compared to group without BIS monitoring. Continues real-time measurement of anaesthetic effect using BIS should allow optimization of drug delivery to each patient, preventing both potential underdosing and overdosing of hypnotic medications. The upper limit of hypnotic titration is defined by the absence of awareness and memory. It should also be associated with the minimum dose of hypnotic agent. Awareness (a state of being aware, i.e., conscious) is one of the major causes of patient s complaints. The reported incidence of intraoperative recall varies from 0,2 to 2% [5, 7, 10, 18, 19]. Prevention of relative hypnotic overmedication should speed emergence and recovery [1, 13, 14]. Conclusions Monitoring of depth of anaesthesia by BIS allows significant reduction of the infusion rate of the hypnotic (etomidate: 30%, propofol: 22%). BIS is, therefore, a useful parameter for safe, low-dose maintenance of anaesthesia. References 1. Badrinath S., Avramov M.
