    General anesthesia prohibits neurological examination during embolization of cerebrovascular malformations when provocative testing prior to pedicle occlusion is needed. Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) has the potential to fill this gap but remains relatively unexplored. We...

    Abstract  Lung sounds are very common source for monitoring and diagnosis of pulmonary function. This approach can be used for detecting one lung intubation (OLI) during anesthesia or intensive care. In this paper, an algorithm for detecting OLI from lung sounds is presented. The algorithm...
