Anesthetic Agents

Anesthetic agents can have a dramatic affect on monitoring modalities. Establishing a rapport with the anesthesiologist is critical so that he/she will use an anesthetic technique that will not adversely affect the monitoring modalities.

In this session, you will learn about inhaled and intravenous anesthetic agents and their affect on the various monitoring modalities. The instructor will guide you through an in-depth discussion of the various anesthetic agents, their purpose, characteristics and affects on the various modalities. Agents covered include:

  • Narcotics
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Barbiturates
  • Inhalation agents
  • Neuromuscular blockades

This session concludes with a discussion on physiological factors and their affect on somatosensory evoked potentials.
