WHAT TO EXPECT THE DAY OF...

IOM from Your Perspective

On the day of your surgery, a National Neuromonitoring technologist will greet in the pre-operative holding room to review your health history, brief you on the monitoring procedure, and present you with a patient consent form.

 

With the initial briefing finished, your technologist will place surface electrodes at specific locations on your ankles and wrists to monitor your nerve pathways during the surgery.

 

Once you are under anesthesia and brought into the operating room, your technologist will place the necessary subdermal electrodes on various locations so they can conduct the appropriate intraoperative monitoring specific to your procedure. The electrodes are then connected to our equipment, and we begin monitoring your neural function before surgery begins.

 

Throughout your surgical procedure, your technologist will run tests and communicate results to the surgeon.  When your surgery is complete, your technologist will remove your electrodes before you wake up from anesthesia.
