Comparison of Adequacy of Anesthesia Monitoring With Standard Clinical Practice During Routine General Anesthesia

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that using Surgical Pleth Index (SPI) and Entropy in adjunct to other clinical information decreases the occurrence rate of inadequate anesthesia events, bradycardia and hypotension in comparison to standard clinical practice during anesthesia. Adequacy of Anesthesia (AoA) monitoring comprises the use of both Entropy and SPI measurements. Adequacy of anesthesia will be monitored using non-invasive blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), ECG, and neuromuscular transmission (NMT).
