Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM)
Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM):
When patients are at risk of injury during clinical operations, the Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) plays a crucial role by monitoring the patient’s nervous system. Continuous monitoring aims to prevent injuries and plan an appropriate risk response. IONM delivers electrical impulses to the nervous system and constantly monitors effects to protect the nervous system. Electrodes may be attached to the scalp, ankles, or wrists. It can also be placed on various muscle groups depending on the operations.
