This unit of study examines the techniques available to monitor the function and wellbeing of the brain and nervous system during anaesthesia and surgery. Despite their widespread use, the effect of general anaesthetic agents on the brain and spinal cord is still poorly understood. There is wide interpatient variability in responses to these agents, and intraoperative haemodynamic fluctuations and underlying disease processes are all threats to the central nervous system which may be mitigated by careful monitoring.
