About this book

Written and edited by outstanding world experts, this is the first portable, single-source volume on intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IOM).  It is aimed at all members of the operative team – anesthesiologists, technologists, neurophysiologists, surgeons, and nurses.

Now commonplace in procedures that place the nervous system at risk, such as orthopedics, neurosurgery, otologic surgery, vascular surgery, and others, effective IOM requires an unusually high degree of coordination among members of the operative team.  The purpose of the book is to help team members acquire a better understanding of one another’s roles and thereby to improve the quality of care and patient safety.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A useful guide for many different health care professionals and particularly for anesthesiologists involved with this monitoring modality. … In various operative circumstances, the reader learns how the IOM team collaborates to optimize conditions for monitoring, troubleshoot undesired developments, detect meaningful changes in observed signals, and reach prompt decisions to guide the surgeon’s intervention. Progressively, the principles of practice of an effective IOM team are clarified. The dynamic interplay of surgery, physiology, and anesthesia management is clearly presented. ... excellent … to the novice and … the developing expert.” (Kevin Nolan, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal Canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 60, 2013)

“‘Monitoring the Nervous System for Anesthesiologists and Other Health Care Professionals’ is an impressive offering. It is well written, indexed, and illustrated. … The chapters are all extensively referenced. It is also very good value at the price. … I would recommend this book to all residents and especially to all neuroanesthesiologists. It will make a worthwhile addition to their library.” (Elizabeth A. M. Frost, Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology, Vol. 24 (3), July, 2012)
