IONM adds a critical point of safety to protect your patients from inadvertent operative harm. Beyond simply warning of impending complications, monitoring can also provide you with a level of comfort in extending a procedure to a greater degree than you would have without it. Some patients can undergo procedures with monitoring that would have been considered too risky without monitoring.

There is a significant body of literature suggesting that IONM reduces complications in a number of operative situations.  For some, such as corrective scoliosis operations, IONM has now become standard of care.

IONM techniques and equipment have improved significantly in the last 20 years, making multi-modality monitoring popular and more accessible to surgeons and patients. While neuromonitoring is best known for its use in orthopaedic and neurosurgical procedures, it is also useful for some otolaryngotical, vascular, neuroradiology and peripheral surgeries.

What to Expect
Expect professionalism and experience. All of our neurophysiologists are well trained and most have at least several years of experience and appropriate skill in the monitoring techniques you request. Our neurologists are highly experienced in electrophysiology.

Training and Certification
Impulse Monitoring has an extensive internal training and continuing education program. Neurophysiologists are expected to hold, or be actively working toward Certification in Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring (CNIM), a national standard. We also internally certify our personnel in low frequency advanced monitoring techniques.

Safety and Reliability
IMI provides real-time supervision by an oversight physician to ensure accurate and timely interpretation and troubleshooting.
