Skull base surgery is an integral part of neurosurgical endeavor, the presence of vital neural structures located there as well as exit/entry foramina for cranial nerves and blood vessels poses a great challenge to the neurosurgeon who must do all possible to preserve this structures during neurosurgical intervention and as well as the neuroanaesthetist who had to continuously monitored neuro-vital signs which guide the surgeon in view of structure such as the brainstem which controls cardiorespiratory activities located in the skull base.
