To compare t he performance of bispectral index (B IS) and t he auditory e2 voked response index ( AA I) in detecting transitions in consciousness during anest hesia induction wit h propofol alone or propofol plus fentanyl. Methods
Anest hesia was induced wit h eit her an intravenous infu2 sion of 30 mg kg 1 h 1of propofol plus 2 g/ kg of fentanyl (group PF , n = 20) or propofol alone (group P , n = 20) . B IS , AA I and t he doses of propofol administered were recorded at t he endpoint of unrespon2 siveness to verbal commands. Plasma propofol concentration was also measured. Results
and its plasma concentration required for getting loss of consciousness were significantly lower in group PF t han t hose in group P ( P < 0101) . The mean B IS value at t he loss of consciousness was significantly higher in group PF t han t hat in group P ( P < 0101) . However ,no difference in AA I was found between t he two groups at t he loss of consciousness ( P > 0105) . Conclusion
The AA I can measure t he transition from consciousness to unconsciousness at similar value levels ,regardless of whet her or not fentanyl pretreat ment was added ,whereas t he B IS values in patients in group PF were higher at t his endpoint t han t hose in group P ,suggesting t hat compared wit h B IS ,t he AA I may be a better indicator of t he state of consciousness dur2 ing propofol/ fentanyl anest hesia ,and t hat AA I can detect t he transition of t he state of consciousness inde2pendent of t he anest hesia regimen.

Principles of Pulse Oximetry FIG. 1 Introduction Pulse oximeters provide a spectrophotometric assessment of functional arterial hemoglobin oxigenation (SpO2). Pulse Oximetry is based hemoglobin (Hb) and oxygenated hemoglobin (HbO2) differ in their absorption of red and infrared light. Second, the volume of arterial blood in tissue (and therefore light absorption by the hemoglo
