ASNM Webinar: Minimizing Confounding Variables and IONM Conflicts

This presentation is intended to give an overview of IONM for major spine procedures and, through general discussion and case studies, to expand on this basic understanding. It will explore how specific technical, physiologic, anesthetic, surgical and communication variables (-based issues) impact IONM.

IONM is a helpful tool employed during spine surgery to reduce the risk of injury to delicate spinal cord and nerve pathways. IONM can, furthermore, be used to evaluate the integrity of bony structures into which metal implants have been placed (i.e. pedicle screw testing) and, also, to identify and localize neural structures. We may not always appreciate (take for granted) how many variables we are evaluating, and how much information we are integrating in order to provide the highest quality and value of IONM data. This presentation is intended to give an overview of IONM for major spine procedures and, through general discussion and case studies, to expand on this basic understanding. It will explore how specific technical, physiologic, anesthetic, surgical and communication variables (-based issues) impact IONM.
