Computerized Neuromonitoring

  • M. R. Gaab


The results presented at this symposium make it clear that the computer has finally found its way into the intensive care unit (ICU). It helps us to accumulate, select and examine the value of data; it records and improves biosignals and eliminates artifacts (Wiener et al. 1982).
