However, in accordance with past studies [15], it is our experience that at the point when rigidity appears, consciousness is already not at a clear level according to patient’s physical responses and BIS-EEG features. It is critical to never misjudge the appropriate time for administering muscle relaxant intravenously to ensure there are no troubles with intravenous lines and to avoid sending oxygen into the digestive tract by high-pressured manual mask ventilation. And though it is possible, if the patients have no respiratory or cardiac diseases which are likely to lead to hypoxia, to prevent a hypoxic state when ventilation with pure oxygen is begun after rigidity decreases or disappears, it definitely presupposes that sufficient pre-oxygenation has been performed ahead of time.

Although it is confirmed of course ahead of time that abnormalities are not observed in head CT of such patients, β-waves are more frequently predominant in the basic EEG activity than in healthy people on the other hand. When we are keeping on confirming BIS-EEG features, EMG noise is disappearing after anesthesia induction with the rise in effect-site concentrations of intravenous anesthetics, and it becomes possible to estimate BIS-EEG features more precisely which suggests that consciousness is not at a clear level.
