Surgery for the treatment of deformities such as scoliosis carries a small but significant risk of damage to the spinal cord through inadvertent compression or interference with the blood supply. Electrophysiological techniques, principally those for recording sensory and motor evoked potentials, offer a means of continuously assessing the conduction of nerve signals up and down the spinal cord and hence the possibility of detecting a defect at an early stage, when the cause may be reversible. This form of monitoring is now accepted practice in many countries. The main contributors to the Handbook are surgeons, neurophysiologists and anaesthetists at the forefront of research. From the United States, where practice has been most widespread, come the results of the first large-scale, multi-centre survey into monitoring methods and their effectiveness. The research papers forming the remainder of the text provide an indication of the high level of current interest and the likely direction of future developments.

Covering both the applications and the related theory, A Concise Guide to Intraoperative Monitoring provides a general but comprehensive introduction to IOM. Unlike existing texts that typically report the results of specific studies, this book presents comprehensive coverage of the entire procedure, as well as the specific protocols used in hospital practice, examples of typical recordings, possible problems, and recommended solutions. At the end of each chapter the author poses several questions for review. These questions help technologists and medical residents in their preparation for the board exams. Taken together, these features make the book an ideal reference or training manual. A Concise Guide to Intraoperative Monitoring begins by discussing the basic principles underlying the generation of bioelectrical signals. It then describes the electronic equipment and the various electrophysiological procedures involved in IOM. From this foundation, the book gradually advances to more specific topics, such as surgical procedures, neuronal structures at risk, the optimum combinations of tests to administer, and the proper interpretation of test results. The material also provides you with a background on general anesthesia and analyzes the effects of various drugs on electrophysiological recordings. A Concise Guide to Intraoperative Monitoring also discusses the proper placement of stimulation and recording electrodes, as well as intervention strategies and equipment troubleshooting.

This book is the first attempt ever made to compile knowledge about the neurophysiology of the human spinal cord acquired by recording electrical events from the space adjacent to spinal structures (epidural space). Moreover, illustrations have been produced in a computerized method that were recorded under different technical specifications but presented under identical standards. This book provides information about the present professional and scientific achievements in this particualr field of human neurophysiology. Information on the electrophysiological characteristics of presynaptic, conducting electrical events as well as post-synaptic stationary electrical events. Information about spinal cord electrical events is given according to different segmental spinal cord levels and spinal cord portions. It will be useful for physicians using electrical events recorded from the spinal cord electrospinograms, to monitor spinal cord functions during surgical interventions, as well as for researchers who are advancing the application of new physiological, pharmacological, surgical and potentially neurobiological procedures for the restoration of impaired spinal cord functions.
