WHAT IS INTRAOPERATIVE NEUROPHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING?

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) is a technique that is directly aimed at reducing the risk of neurological deficits after operations that involve the nervous system. It makes use of recordings of electrical potentials from the nervous system during surgical operations. Bromedicon, Inc.'s advanced monitoring techniques and high-quality equipment make all the difference when it comes to insuring patient safety and outcome in surgical procedures. It is the first line of defense for the patient's nervous system during and post surgery.

Hemorrhagic Stroke

Hemorrhagic Stroke

Hemorrhagic stroke—the type of stroke that is caused by bleeding into the brain—accounts for about 13 percent of strokes but about 40 percent of deaths by the stroke. Elevated blood pressure and inherited abnormalities in blood vessels are two things that can cause hemorrhagic stroke.

EEG After Concussion

EEG After Concussion

Concussion diagnosis is a notoriously tricky science.

Even if an assessment test on the sideline of a football or soccer field deems you to be concussion-free after a blow to the head, that doesn’t necessarily mean you didn’t suffer one, says Michael Singer, CEO of BrainScope, a Bethesda, Maryland-based company that has developed a new technology for detecting signs of a concussion in a person’s brain waves and has raised approximately $70 million from investors including the U.S. Department of Defense and the NFL.

There is no objective way to detect or assess a concussion, technically known as a mild traumatic brain injury, and BrainScope is trying to change that. Doctors diagnose them based mainly on signs and symptoms. Most people that come into the emergency room after hitting their head also get a computerized tomography (CT) scan to rule out very serious injury. But a CT scan doesn’t detect concussion.

EEG Basics and IOM

The EEG is generated from the difference in voltage between any two electrodes which are secured on the patient’s scalp according to the International 10-20 System. The EEG is recorded from different pairs of these electrodes termed derivations and groups of these derivations are referred to as the montage., e.g. double banana montage
