What BIS Monitor Is Really Good For
This is a brilliant idea from the Gomer Blog. You know those times when you just can't stay awake during a case? It's 2:00 in the afternoon and you're in a plastic surgery case that just won't seem to end. Well, instead of plastering the BIS monitor on your patient, how about pasting one on your own forehead. That way if you start falling asleep the circulating nurse will notice right away and wake you up. No more dumb excuses like you're just resting your eyes. I'm sure the BIS should have marketed this idea to hospital administrators and lawyers first. They would have sold a lot more of these devices.
