Primer of Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring book cover

Primer of Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring

* The first text combining all aspects of neurophysiologic assessment - EEG, evoked potentials, ICP, TCD, etc. * A user-friendly primer with important points stressed * A joint anaesthesia and neurology effort. In this book, neurophysiology and
pathophysiology are clinically applied in all aspects of intraoperative neuro-monitoring - including intracranial pressure, jugular venous oximetry and neuro-electric assessment with EEG and evoked potentials. Information is presented in a clear concise
manner for the novice in neuromonitoring, with enough detail and descriptive assessment that the experienced clinician or neurophysiologist will be informed and kept current.
