In this observational study, all enrolled patients having a thoracic surgical procedure requiring lung isolation will have a bispectral index (BIS) monitor placed at time of induction. BIS monitors are used to assist in determining depth of anesthesia. This study will evaluate changes in BIS before, during and after lung isolation.
