Various diagrams facilitate the understanding of many concepts within anesthesia, such as the anesthetic triangle model, which describes a drug’s effect on narcosis, analgesia, and neuromuscular relaxation, leading to the common knowledge that anesthesia is not complete until all three components have been reached. As anesthesiologists, we strive to ensure that our patients maintain homeostasis throughout surgical procedures, often using multiple different monitoring strategies such as electrocardiograms, arterial lines, and pulse oximetry, among various other tools. However, the use of multiple monitors can lead to an abundance of information and a relative feeling of sensory overload, which has been a topic of attention in previous studies that highlight that an increased amount of information displayed on monitors can reduce the ability of users to detect unexpected changes, even when they are in plain sight.2,3...
