El índice de monitorización biespectral, un procedimiento no invasivo de reciente introducción, ha sido utilizado y aplicado en el quirófano y en la unidad de cuidados intensivos en pacientes con sedación, coma barbitúrico, estado epiléptico, hipoglicemia, hipotermia, flujo cerebral bajo, ventilación mecánica y en pacientes sometidos a procedimientos no invasivos a la cabecera de la cama. Esta técnica es una herramienta útil para reducir los eventos de agitación del paciente y el retiro involuntario/accidental de los dispositivos médicos; ofrece también seguridad en el grado de sedación del paciente, permitiendo la adaptación del tipo y cantidad de fármacos utilizados y la reducción de costos. El equipo es pequeño y fácil de utilizar.

Palabras clave: Índice biespectral, monitoreo, unidad de terapia intensiva.
