A Practical Approach to Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring covers all aspects of neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring (NIOM), which is increasingly being used to continuously assess the functional integrity of a patients nervous system during surgery. With training in NIOM seldom available in traditional programs, this book is the only practical source for essential information on the clinical practice of NIOM.
The book is divided into two convenient sections: Section One, Basic Principles, covers the modalities used in monitoring as well as the rarely discussed topics of remote monitoring, billing, ethical issues, and a buyer's guide for setting up a laboratory. Section Two reviews anatomy, physiology, and surgery of the various procedures, followed by details of the monitoring modalities and their interpretive criteria. Special features include:

Portability, easy to carry and use
Includes all major types of surgeries for which NIOM is requested
Information on buying, training, set-up, and billing that is not available anywhere else
A unique technical section at the end of each chapter that reviews the logistics of monitoring a particular type of surgery
Useful for trainees and experienced clinicians
Value-priced at $75.00!
With wide use of bullet points, tables, and illustrations, this pocket-sized manual is essential reading for neurologists, neuroanesthesiologists, neurosurgeons, and OR techs.;Introduction to the Operating Room; Basic Monitoring Steps; Remote Monitoring; Anesthetic Considerations for IOM; Billing; Ethical, and Legal Issues in IOM; Training Curriculum in IOM; Buyer Guide to IOM Machines; Surgery on the Vertebral Column; Spinal Cord Surgery; Lumbosacral Surgery; Tethered Cord Surgery; Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy; Dorsal Root Entry Zone Procedures; Peripheral Nerve Surgery; Cerebellopontine Angle Surgery; Aortic Surgery; Carotid Surgery Corticography and Brain Mapping.;"With its 31 different specialists, including neurologists and neurosurgeons, the book addresses the main targets inneuromonitoring, including somatosensory evoked potentials, EEG, and other technologies that have recently become available that helped neurosurgeonsperform safer operations, with a lower incidence of morbidity and mortality. Because of its direct clinical applications, this is a good purchase for any neurological and neurosurgical library."--Doody's Reviews
"This collection of 17 articles focuses on the practical,covering operating room procedures, basic NIOM techniques, remote monitoring and anesthetic considerations, billing procedures, legal and ethical issues,and available equipment. Contributors also describe NIOM in surgery of thevertebral column, spinal cord, tethered cord, peripheral nerves,cerebellopotine angle (microvascular decompression and tumor), thoracicaorta, carotid artery, and in cases of epilepsy-related surgery, selectivedorsal rhizotomy and lumbosacral surgery. Articles are well-illustrated and include step-by-step instructions for assembling an NIOM facility, managing its operations and conducting monitoring."--SciTech Book News
"I would certainly recommend A Practical Approach to Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring to any technologist who monitors in the operating room."-Kimberly Ellis, American Journal of Electroneurodiagnostic Technology, September 2010
