Postoperative mortality is associated with the combination of low end-organ perfusion pressure, deep hypnosis, and low volatile anesthetic concentration. Some studies have shown a link between mortality and the cumulative duration of a “triple low” defined as a low mean arterial pressure (MAP), low bispectral index (BIS), low end-tidal minimum alveolar concentration.
