Monitors, Physiologic, Neurology

Definition : Physiologic monitors designed to measure and display the adequacy of the nerve function (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 (e.g., for nerve block, evoked potential evaluation). Neurologic monitors are mostly used to assess patients in intensive care or intra-operatively.
