"The main advantages of the BARM System include:
- It is the only monitor with algorithms based on a model of brain electrical activity derived from physiological principles. Other anaesthesia monitoring systems on the market use statistically based empirical approaches.
- Consequently, it is sensitive to a range of sedative and anaesthetic agents including midazolam, propofol, ketamine, nitrous oxide and sevoflurane, some of which other depth of anaesthesia monitors cannot detect.
- The monitor produces a reading within 2 seconds, compared with 30 seconds for a leading industry competitor, which provides for a more responsive and accurate measurement for the anaesthetist and a significant competitive advantage for the BARM System.
- The BARM System is believed to be the only EEG based depth of anaesthesia monitor to measure both hypnotic (level of consciousness) and analgesic (pain relief) state."
