About this seminar

Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) poses numerous challenges for anaesthetists. Where IONM for surgery is used, the role of the anaesthetist is not only to provide optimal anaesthesia but also to facilitate IONM and to conduct a continuous interaction with members of neuromonitoring team. It is important for an anaesthetist to understand the rationale behind the monitoring and the basis of its utility. This also enables a close working relationship with the monitoring team and the surgeon and is key to a successful and an improved outcome.

Topics include:
• Basic principles of various commonly used neuromonitoring techniques for brain and spinal cord.
• Basic interpretation of IONM
• Effects of anaesthetic agents on recorded signals
• Strategy for responding to electrophysiological changes
• Interactive case studies
