A monitoring tool for general anesthesia
Due to pharmacokinetics, there is a time delay in agent concentrations between the lungs and the target organ, the brain. MAC Brain is a unique feature that uses mathematical models and data-driven algorithms to visualize the difference and act as a decision-support framework to help guide anesthetic dosing.
How MAC Brain works
The image shows the interface of Flow Family anesthesia machines.
The end-tidal MAC and MAC brain are found in the lower left corner of the screen (marked with a green frame). The interface snapshot was taken during induction, when the difference between the two values is often the highest.
MAC Brain is visualized on screen using an algorithm based on basic research and pharmacokinetic models. The option is included in the 4.7 software.
