ABSTRACT
Intraoperative neuromonitoring (INM) is well known to be useful method to reduce intraoperative complications during the surgery of nervous system lesions. Evoked potentials are most commonly used among the electrophysiological tests. Brainstem auditory evoked potentials are for detecting the problems along the auditory pathways including the eighth cranial nerve and brainstem. Somatosensory evoked potentials are applied for preventing the spinal cord lesions. The INM is affected by many factors. In order to perform an optimal INM, the confounding factors including technical, anesthetical, and individual factors should be kept well under control. INM has frequent electrophysiologic changes during the surgery and it might be helpful to keep one
Key words: Intraoperative monitoring, Brainstem auditory evoked potentials, Somatosensory evoked potentials, Electroencephalography,Electromyography, Nerve conduction study
