The Patient State Index (PSI) is the numerical value of anesthesia depth as measured using a SedLine Sedation Monitor (Masimo Corporation). In this pilot study, we evaluated PSI values captured during intravenous (IV) moderate sedation for dental treatment. During the dental treatment, a dental anesthesiologist maintained the Modified Observer's Assessment of Alertness/Sedation (MOAA/S) score at 3 to 4 by adjusting the administration of midazolam and propofol while PSI values were recorded. The mean (SD) and median (25th percentile, 75th percentile) PSI values during dental treatment under IV moderate sedation were 72.7 (13.6) and 75 (65, 85), respectively.
