A Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blinded Study of the Effect on Improved Recovery Using the SEDLine TM for the Titration of Sevoflurane in Elderly Patients Undergoing Non-Cardiac Surgery After Beta-Adrenergic Blockade
Asses the effect of the use of Patient State Index (PSI) monitoring on difference in emergence profiles in the elderly (age >65 yrs) population to develop a cost-benefit profile. Assess differences in Quality of Life using the QoR-40 (a validated 40-item questionnaire on quality of recovery from anesthesia) between the two treatment groups.
