LHI Online Evoked Potentials Board Prep © 9 ASET CEUs

This course is also a good foundation for learning or sharpening Basic Intraoperative Monitoring (IOM) skills.  Your subscription to this course will last 360 days from date of purchase.

The topics covered include:

 

  • Introduction to Evoked Potentials,
  • Instrumentation,
  • Visual Evoked Potentials,

 

  • Upper Extremity SSEPs,
  • Lower Extremity SSEPs, and
  • Auditory Brainstem Response.

 

An Introduction to Evoked Potentials modalities is followed by lectures on near-field vs far-field recording methods, stimulus types and characteristics, calibration, polarity, amplification (recording gain, display gain, sensitivity), and filters. The averaging process will be explained in detail. You will learn how the analysis time, number of points, dwell time and sampling rate determine horizontal resolution and how to calculate each. Vertical resolution and the number of voltage levels expressed as bit capacity will be explained. You will gain an understanding of the signal-to-noise ratio and its effect on the resolution of the signal. You will gain a working knowledge of EP terminology.

We will begin with an introduction of the VEP followed by anatomy and physiology of the Visual System, electrode placement, instrument parameters, visual angle, montage construction, and peak identification. T

We will begin with an introduction of the Upper Extremity SSEP followed by anatomy and physiology of the Upper Extremity Somatosensory System, electrode placement, instrument parameters, montage construction, and peak identification.

We will begin with an introduction of the Lower Extremity SSEP followed by anatomy and physiology of the Lower Extremity Somatosensory System, electrode placement, instrument parameters, montage construction, and peak identification.

We begin with an introduction of Brainstem Auditory EP followed by anatomy and physiology of the Brainstem Auditory System, electrode placement, instrument parameters, montage construction, and peak identification.

ABOUT US

When we started our careers in IOM, 10+ years ago we were thrown into the OR with little to no formal training. Without access to a quality program and no guidance, we struggled to pass the CNIM exam. As we grew in our careers that time was never far from our minds and we don’t want new technologists to have the same struggles we did.
