Combined Monitoring—Brain Function Monitoring and Cerebral Oximetry

Combined Monitoring—Brain Function Monitoring and Cerebral Oximetry



Peri-operative brain function monitoring is still seen by most clinicians as complex, difficult to interpret and is therefore adopted very slowly. Current available technology mainly focusses on either a processed parameter based on the electroencephalogram to titrate anesthetics and central acting agents or on cerebral oximetry, a wider term to obtain information on the cerebral oxygen balance. There is still a lack of technological offerings that allow to monitor both entities in one device. However, there is scientific evidence that it is possible to combine measurements in an algorithmic approach that allows to better manage brain function in the surgical setting. Such integrated solutions should be made available to clinicians as they are likely to optimize patient care dependent on a sound health technology assessment.
