Medtronic BIS? (SONORA) - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?

We are doing this study to learn more about how well the study device (the Bispectral Index monitoring system) measures brain activity in a person that is under anesthesia (being medically asleep).

The Bispectral Index monitoring (BIS) can help anesthesiologists (Doctor that gives you anesthesia) know how much medicine needs to be given to reach the best level of sedation.
