IOM 1130 Intraoperative Neuromonitoring II

This course builds upon fundamental concepts acquired in IONM I. A focus on the National Professional Competencies, Professional Standards of Practice, and evidence-based theory continue as more complex content is developed. Somatosensory and motor evoked potentials, brainstem auditory evoked potentials, electromyography (EMG, live and triggered, SEMG, TEMG) and train-of-four monitor are examined. More advanced skills are introduced, while further application of instrumentation and recording techniques are emphasized. The integration of abnormal patterns, artifact recognition, troubleshooting techniques and age-related patterns are an integral component of this course. Perioperative medicine, anesthesia and its effects on IONM signals are examined.
