Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Anesthesiology Volume 55, Issue 03: What’s New in Brain Monitoring?

The goal of this program is to improve patient outcomes through appropriate use of brain monitoring. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Identify patients likely to experience awareness under anesthesia.
2. Describe how processed electroencephalography monitors function.
3. Use brain monitors to prevent complications from both under- and overdosing of patients.
4. Define bicoherence and burst suppression.
5. Recognize the limitations of brain monitors.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
