A patent application (Publication Number: US20240032849A1) describes a method for determining the presence, absence, and monitorability of evoked potentials within SSEP recordings. The method involves acquiring SSEP recordings from a subject, identifying evoked potentials, comparing ongoing potentials to a baseline, and executing an alert when deviations occur. The method includes features such as calculating peak markers, determining monitorability using machine learning algorithms, and adapting data size based on confidence values.

Furthermore, the patent application details the use of a nerve injury detection device within an SSEP system, comprising stimulating and recording electrodes. The device implements the method described in the patent for monitoring evoked potentials. It also includes features like identifying artifacts, compensating for noise, and providing alerts through various means like auditory, visual, or haptic alerts. Additionally, the application covers a method for identifying relevant peaks in ongoing SSEP recordings by comparing them to a predetermined baseline recording and selecting primary and reference peaks based on amplitude and latency criteria.
