PURPOSE: The bispectral index (BIS) monitor is one of the most commonly used objective monitor of sedation depth in ventilated intensive care unit patients on neuromuscular blockade. Available guidelines discourage use as primary monitor in non-paralyzed critically ill patients. This study reviews available literature comparing subjective assessment of sedation versus objective assessment with the BIS monitor, of non-paralyzed mechanically ventilated adult patients.
