IMPLICATIONS: For the first time, bispectral index (BIS) has been studied in patients being anesthetized solely with ether. Ether both causes an increase and decrease in BIS during induction and emergence. The index observed during the surgical stage of ether anesthesia is probably the correct value for the depth of hypnosis because no other volatile anesthetic can produce the true anesthetic state when used alone. This value could be taken as the value to be attained when balanced anesthesia is being practiced.
