Intraoperative Neuromonitoring

Protecting the nervous system during surgery.

Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM) consists of a group of technologies that monitor neural pathways during high-risk neurosurgical, orthopedic, peripheral nerve, and vascular surgeries.

As a division of CCS, Comprehensive Neuromonitoring (CNM) specializes in IONM staffing and services. CNM has the capability to:

  • Fill urgent surgical neurophysiologist staffing gaps.
  • Provide long-term IONM coverage.
  • Supply trained & experienced clinicians available on-demand.
  • Train & manage existing neuromonitoring staff.

While undergoing certain surgical procedures, a patient’s brain, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves may be at risk for serious injury. IONM implements an advanced methodology to assist in preventing nerve damage and preserving healthy nervous system function.

What is IONM?

In IONM, a trained surgical neurophysiologist monitors nervous system function to prevent nerve or brain damage during delicate surgical procedures, including neurosurgical, orthopedic, otolaryngology, general, vascular, and peripheral surgery.

Modalities offered by CNM IONM:

  • Somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP)
  • Transcranial electric motor evoked potentials (TCEMEP)
  • Electromyography and pedicle screw testing
  • Brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP)
  • Motor cranial nerve monitoring including facial and recurrent laryngeal nerve monitoring
  • Motor cortical mapping / Sensory cortical mapping / Language mapping
  • Electrocorticography (ECOG)
  • Intraoperative EEG
  • Peripheral nerve mapping
  • Acetabular monitoring
  • Bulbocavernosa and h-reflex monitoring

CNM enables hospitals to quickly fill any IONM staffing gap with a highly skilled and experienced clinician for top-tier surgical performance. For medical centers seeking to expand their services, CNM also provides comprehensive neuromonitoring staff management and training.

Comprehensive Neuromonitoring Services provides a full spectrum of intraoperative neurological services, as well as perfusion, autotransfusion, therapeutic apheresis, and production of autologous tissue glue.
