Learner Outcomes

After completing IONM 140 students will recognize the common IONM modalities used to monitor sensory and motor function in the operating room. They will be able to describe the practical aspects and requirements needed to stimulate, record and interpret intraoperative neurophysiological signals. Students will be able to explain the benefits that each IONM modality can provide to a wide range of neurosurgical and spinal procedures.

Evaluation Method

Online quiz after each module, final multiple choice online exam

Intended For

Health professionals who are or will be working in an intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring role.
