Monitors, Physiologic, Neurology, Bedside

Definition : Physiologic monitors designed for continuous measurement and display of parameters related to the adequacy of the neurological activity of the nerves, brain, and spinal cord. These units are hard-wired to the patient at the bedside. Neurophysiologic monitors typically consist of a main computerized electronic unit that process and display the information; detachable electrodes (e.g., cups, needles) appropriate to acquire the specific neuro-electrical signals; and integral or autonomous stimulators appropriate to provide the required stimuli. Bedside neurologic monitors are mostly used to assess patients in intensive care (e.g., patients who are irresponsive or in coma).
