Automated monitoring of brainstem auditory evoked potentials in the operating room

We monitored brainstem auditory evoked potentials in 112 patients undergoing retromastoid craniectomies for microvascular decompression. To provide information on latency changes as quickly as possible, we implemented a block averaging technique of data acquisition with automatic tracking of wave V latency, which is the most clinically useful information.
