Abstract

The risk of venous air embolism is significant in neurosurgical procedures performed in the sitting position. Monitoring for venous air embolism, therefore, is crucial and can be approached from several aspects. The most sensitive generally applicable clinical method for the detection of intracardiac gas is based on an application of the Doppler principle. The Authors describe the technique used to adapt a transcranial Doppler (TC 2-64 B, EME, Germany), and a probe designed to record the Doppler signal from intracranial arteries (Transcran FP 2, EME, Germany), as precordial Doppler in order to monitor venous air embolism in neurosurgical procedures performed in the sitting position.
