Monitors, Physiologic, Neurology, Intraoperative

Definition : Physiologic monitors designed for continuous intraoperative measurement and display of the parameters related to the adequacy of the neurological activity of the nerves, brain, and spinal cord. These monitors typically can measure, process, and display evoke potentials (EP), electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography (EEG) and/or neuromuscular block response signals. Neurophysiologic monitors typically consist of a main computerized electronic unit that processes and displays 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. Intraoperative neurologic monitors are mostly used to assess patients during surgical procedures and/or perioperatively.
