This randomized study investigates the benefits of an additional Bispectral Index monitoring of depth of sedation during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography. A bispectral index (BIS) monitor is a neurophysiological monitoring device which continually analyses a patient's electroencephalograms during general anaesthesia to assess the level of consciousness during anaesthesia.

Condition Intervention
Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
Device: BIS monitoring

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Bispectral Index Monitoring as an Adjunct to Standard Monitoring of Sedation During Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreaticography
