Cell Saver Surgical Table The cell saver is used to process the patient’s blood and return the red blood cells to the patient (hence the name). At times, especially when grounding is faulty, the cell saver can produce significant artifact that impairs averaging EPs. Surgical tables are of many different types. They are usually electrically powered and plug into an AC outlet. In addition to moving up and down, they can turn in various directions to help optimize patient positioning. 11). The artifact can be isolated to the bed if unplugging the bed eliminates the artifact.
Finally, EMG activity may be present prior to incision in some patients. , radiculopathy) and in these patients only increased EMG activity over this baseline is likely to reflect further nerve irritation. EMG activity may also be correlated to surgical activity when the surgical activity is trivial or remote from the neural elements • 25 activated. Once some degree of nerve damage is established (either intraoperatively or preoperatively), minor manipulation of the corresponding nerve or even patient movement may elicit strong EMG activity (see below).
However, the monitoring technologist should learn to identify anesthetics delivered, inspired and expired gases, blood pressures, and temperature, all of which are displayed on the anesthesia equipment. 7 The anesthesia work station. 8). It can be used for diagnostic and interventional purposes. Although a C-arm can be wall-mounted, in the operating room it is often mobile so that it can be positioned appropriately. The C-arm can be angulated in any direction so as to provide the best possible imaging study.
