Evoked Potential Technicians

Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) or intraoperative neuromonitoring is the use of electrophysiological methods such as electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), transcrainial motor evoked potentials (TcMEP) and somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP) to monitor the functional integrity of certain neural structures (e.g., nerves, spinal cord and neural pathways) during surgery.

The purpose of IONM is to reduce the risk to the patient from intraoperative damage to the nervous system, and/or to provide functional guidance to the surgeon and anesthesiologist.  Neurosurgery, vascular surgery, orthopedic spine and ENT, are the most common places to utilize  intraoperative neuromonitoring.
