Abstract

The dedicated intraoperative examination monitor for awake surgery (IEMAS) was originally developed by us to facilitate the process of brain mapping during awake craniotomy and successfully used in 186 neurosurgical procedures. This information-sharing device provides the opportunity for all members of the surgical team to visualize a wide spectrum of the integrated intraoperative information related to the condition of the patient, nuances of the surgical procedure, and details of the corticalmapping, practically without interruption of the surgical manipulations. The wide set of both anatomical and functional parameters, such as view of the patient's mimic and face movements while answering the specific questions, type of the examination test, position of the surgical instruments, parameters of the bispectral index monitor, and general view of the surgical field through the operating microscope, is presented compactly in one screen with several displays. However, the initially designed IEMAS system was occasionally affected by interruption or detachment of the connecting cables, which sometimes interfered with its effective clinical use. Therefore, a new modification of the device was developed. The specific feature is installation of wireless information transmitting technology using audio-visual transmitters and receivers for transfer of images and verbal information. The modified IEMAS system is very convenient to use in the narrow space of the operating room.
