Intra-operation monitoring depth of anesthesia is an important method to insure the quality and safety of clinical anesthesia. As a noninvasive brain function monitoring technology, functional near-infrared spectroscopy can provide objective and reliable brain activity monitoring and imaging in real time. The characteristic of this technique is highly suitable for interrelated research on depth of anesthesia monitoring. The present paper briefly introduced the fundamental and instruments of functional near-infrared spectroscopy, reviewed the current situation about the application of functional near-infrared spectroscopy in research on depth of anesthesia monitoring, pointed out the possible way of using functional near-infrared spectroscopy in depth of anesthesia monitoring research, and expounded the unsolved problems and future prospects.
