ABSTRACT
Anaesthesia for the deaf-mute could be a taxing experience for the anaesthetist due to ineffective communication. The Bispectral index (BIS) monitor has been validated to measure the hypnotic component of anaesthesia. We report the use of the BIS monitor in the anaesthetic management of a deaf-mute undergoing general anaesthesia for myomectomy.
