EEG is useful in several operating room procedures. It has come to be a standard part of monitoring patients during carotid endarterectomy. Monitoring for cerebral hypoperfusion or emboli can also be done in cardiac surgery or other similar settings. For carotid endarterectomy, studies in humans suggest that the risk of stroke can be reduced 10-fold by selective vascular shunting based on major EEG changes compared to no shunting. EEG can be recorded from exposed cerebral cortex, a technique… CONTINUE READING
