LHI Foundations in EP – Instrumentation © 4 ASET CEUs

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.  The perfect class as an introduction to IOM as well.



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.
