Abstract

Evoked potentials (EPs) have proven to be powerful diagnostic tools in many neurosensory disorders. Recently, they have been used with great success as intraoperative monitors during surgery. Such short-term monitoring has been helpful in avoiding post surgical deficits such as hearing loss, paralysis and other neurological sequelae. This is accomplished by presenting indices of developing dysfunction so that the surgeon can alter his procedure. Since evoked potentials are very sensitive to even mild forms of oxygen deprivation, they have been especially helpful in preventing intraoperative hypoxia. Another area where immediate on-line oxygenation measurements are highly important is in the intensive care unit.
