SPI – Benefits of SPI monitoring

Welcome to this GE Healthcare educational series on Surgical Pleth Index (SPI) monitoring. This measurement is part of the GE Healthcare Adequacy of Anesthesia concept. It relates to surgical stimulation causing sympathetic responses of the autonomic nervous system, how such responses are normally suppressed by analgesics and how those responses can be objectively measured. SPI provides information of the responsiveness of adult patients to surgical stimulation and noxious stimulation during general anaesthesia and it helps the clinician to titrate the level of analgesic medication according to an individual patient need. In this second video we will be covering the benefits of monitoring adequacy of analgesia. SPI is not 510(k) cleared, not available in US and Japan.
