Research Study Summary
A clinical research study for the treatment of Anesthesia or Neuromuscular Blockade
Research Study Title
The Effect of Rocuronium on the Response of Composite Variability Index (CVI) to Laryngoscopy
The Bispectral Index monitor is used in many operating rooms to provide information to the
anesthesiologist about a patient's level of consciousness. The Composite Variability Index,
or Composite Variability Index (CVI), is a new index that may provide the anesthesiologist
with more information about the condition of the patient. The purpose of this study is to
determine if a commonly used anesthetic drug (rocuronium) affects the CVI measurement
differently with different doses. Rocuronium is a muscle relaxant routinely used during
surgery. It is expected that the group given the highest dose of rocuronium will have
diminished CVI values.
