How ANI reacts- On OFA and bolus of Ketamine

Another OFA case by Dr. Ricardo Villamarin shows how ANI can react and detect nociception while the patient is undergoing a laparoscopic prostatectomy. When the doctor induces the patient with a ketamine bolus and it starts its effect, the ANI value increases reflecting the drug’s effect which makes the doctor able to stabilize the patient’s condition and give him adequate treatment. Opioid-free anesthesia is based on controlling the ANS response, and MDoloris Medical Systems created the ANI technology to help physicians guide their analgesics to control the ANS balance for better, more stable outcomes for the patients.
