SERs were recorded in five patients who were undergoing carotid endarterectomy surgery using a cervical plexus block. It is concluded that continuous SER monitoring during carotid endarterectomy is a useful technique to detect early central nervous system dysfunction from hypoperfusion and possibly indicates the need to institute a bypass shunt. SERs are also easier to interpret under clinical conditions than is the EEG.
