What you'll learn

  • Plan a multimodality neurophysiologic procedure, customized to each case needs. 

  • Possess the necessary technical skills for performance of reliable procedures. 

  • Accurately Interpret the most complex recordings to be encountered during these procedures via interactive case scenarios.

  • Integrate live intraoperative neurophysiologic recordings within the surgical and anesthesia context.

  • Efficiently communicate with the multidisciplinary team. 

  • Independently and confidently perform mapping procedures.

Course description

Mapping techniques identify and thus help preserve functionally viable neural tissue. Monitoring procedures can detect early, reversible neurophysiologic dysfunction and guide changes in the surgical and/or anesthesia management, towards avoidance of permanent injury. The preventive value of intraoperative neurophysiology not only improves patient care but can also significantly reduce health care costs associated with poor postoperative neurologic outcomes such as loss of motor function. It is increasingly being utilized to safely perform high risk and complex surgical procedures.

This course is targeted to Intraoperative Neurophysiologists, Clinical Neurophysiologists, IONM technologists, Neurologists, Surgeons,  Neurosurgeons, Orthopaedic surgeons, Vascular surgeons, Cardiac surgeons, ENT surgeons and Anesthesiologists.
