This comprehensive volume will serve as a complete guide to the clinical application of computer assisted systems in monitoring central nervous functions both in the OR and ICU. It presents practical guidelines and therapeutic indications for computerized EEG and Somatosensory Evoked Potential (SSEP) monitoring for the experienced user as well as the novice, leading the newcomer step-by-step to a level of advanced monitoring. Basic procedures and data handling are explained in a user-friendly and practical way.

The book also describes what cerebral monitoring can do and what its limitations are. In addition, proper selection of the available monitoring devices, set-up procedures, the technique of electrode placement, trouble shooting and data interpretation are fully covered. Various typical cases underline how EEG power spectra and evoked potential changes are interpreted, how they are used in the light of other variables being measured how they can serve to get a deeper insight into the underlying clinical situation. In this respect representative and color illustrated examples further emphasize the link between this book and clinical practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:
"Prof. Freye's book is an organized treatment of cerebral activity which offers a clear explanation of the generation of cerebral impulses and the potential value that cerebral monitoring holds for patients. Although many complex algorithms appear in the book, the text explains modern monitoring techniques with such simplicity that even physicians with little knowledge of mathematics and physics will easily understand the subject. Moreover, the study of evoked potentials, which is invaluable in orthopedic surgery and many other pathologies treated in Intensive Care, is presented clearly and logically. Attractive graphics contribute to the pleasure of reading the book, making the subject less tiring for readers who are confronting the subject for the first time. Physicians who are accustomed to using the ECG will also find that the close examination of this topic alone makes the book worthwhile."
Vincenzo Lanza, Editor in Chief of the Journal of Clinical Monitoring and Computing
