This paper investigates the use of wavelet decomposition of the electroencephalogram (EEG) to assess the hypnotic state of anesthetized patients undergoing surgery. A single case study and a comparison with an existing monitor of hypnosis are presented. The proposed technique can differentiate clearly between the anesthetized state and the awake "baseline" state.
