Every patient is individualized, of course, but in general, invasive monitoring techniques are not used during surgery. Arterial blood gases are monitored by an external device, which fits over the finger, blood pressures are measured by a blood pressure cuff, and intravenous access is maintained by a peripheral IV. Any invasive monitoring device has its own potential complications and is avoided if possible.
