Cerebral Function Monitoring

Show Summary Details


Intraoperative electrophysiologic monitoring of cerebral function during cardiovascular surgery requires a thorough knowledge of the effect of anesthetic agents on electrophysiologic signals. Although there are variations among anesthetic agents and their effects on the EEG, most of the agents produce similar changes that can be recognized and distinguished from the effects of ischemia. Success of the monitoring also depends heavily on the technical aspects of recording, such as the timescale of the EEG display and adjustment of the anesthetic agent used.
