A 24-year-old female asked:
if general anesthesia is used for a csection how do they know the patient is actually asleep and not feeling? do they use an eeg to monitor?

Anesthesia stages: It is a deeper stage than what EEG shows. The reflex is no longer present, blood pressure, heart rate, breathing pattern, and temperature also change. There is no need to monitor EEG in general.
