PATIENTS & FAMILIES
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
Both physicians and patients can feel confident that every precaution has been taken to ensure a successful outcome and avoid unintentional surgically-induced injuries. IONM (Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring) applies SSEP (somatosensory evoked potentials ), BAEP (brainstem auditory evoked potentials), tceMEP (transcranial electric motor evoked potentials), EMG (Electromyography), and EEG (Electroencephalography) recording techniques to detect any changes in the functional status of critical neurological structures that are at risk during surgery.
WHAT TO EXPECT
United Medical Monitoring CNIM technicians and physicians will collect, analyze, and interpret data from your body’s nervous system during your scheduled surgery. Prior to the start of the surgical procedure, small electrodes will be attached (with a mild adhesive or inserted just under the skin) to various parts of the patient’s body. United’s technologists and physicians will use these electrodes and computers to continuously monitor the functional status of at risk neural pathways and help identify the potential for injuries to the central and peripheral nervous system.
