  • IONM
  • Recently, SpecialtyCare renowned as a leading provider of surgical services, perfusion, and intraoperative neuromonitoring acquired Sentient, a prominent IONM provider in October 2016. (sbwire.com)
  • SSEP
  • By analogy with the steady-state response of a resonant circuit that follows the initial transient response he defined an idealized steady-state evoked potential (SSEP) as a form of response to repetitive sensory stimulation in which the constituent frequency components of the response remain constant with time in both amplitude and phase. (wikipedia.org)
  • posterior
  • Further modification of Foerster's technique by Fasano et al, described as "functional posterior rhizotomy," promoted the use of intraoperative electrostimulation for root selection instead of the Gros method of clinical identification. (medscape.com)
  • Anaesthesia
  • For example, a patient who consumes significant quantities of alcohol or illicit drugs could be undermedicated if they fail to disclose this fact, and this could lead to anaesthesia awareness or intraoperative hypertension. (wikipedia.org)
  • skull
  • In contrast, conventional electroencephalography (EEG) electrodes monitor this activity from outside the skull. (wikipedia.org)
  • findings
  • These findings, which were repeated by Harvey Cushing through the early 1900s, show that the Rolandic fissure is the point of separation between the motor and sensory cortices. (wikipedia.org)
  • electrode
  • During this test for epilepsy, your doctor places electrode sensors on your scalp or brain surface to monitor your brain's electrical activity. (muschealth.org)
  • Once the dura mater is peeled back, an electrode is placed on the brain to test motor, sensory, language, or visual function at a specific brain site. (wikipedia.org)
  • specific
  • [ 9 ] Severance of these specific inputs would allow for loss of tone without concomitant loss of other sensory input or motor control. (medscape.com)
  • An EP test measures how the brain responds to specific types of sensory input such as sound, light and sensation. (muschealth.org)
  • thus
  • Such well-defined guidelines has resulted in better outcome, thus benefiting hospitals and patients alike and accelerating the pace of gains for intraoperative neuromonitoring market in turn. (sbwire.com)
  • cases
  • Following the acquisition, SpecialtyCare has increased the overall number of intraoperative neuromonitoring associates to support cases in the U.S., which is also its existing market, besides expanding coverage across the Atlantic States. (sbwire.com)
  • Out of 233 monitoring cases in this study 149 have shown no difference of the potentials during the entire surgical procedure. (egms.de)
  • patients
  • The burden of healthcare costs on patients and their desire to avoid readmission have upped the adoption of intraoperative neuromonitoring around the world. (sbwire.com)
  • The Anticoagulation Clinic , which monitors patients taking warfarin anti-coagulants, is located in the Specialty Center, 1931 Brown Street, Suite A, on the Anderson campus. (stvincent.org)
  • effective
  • Prior to a planned procedure, the anaesthetist reviews medical records and/or interviews the patient to determine the best combination of drugs and dosages and the degree to which monitoring will be required to ensure a safe and effective procedure. (wikipedia.org)
  • care
  • On account of the increasing care toward patient safety, the demand for intraoperative neuromonitoring has continued to rise at a steady pace. (sbwire.com)
  • contrast
  • The presence of choledocholithiasis is confirmed by imaging studies such as transabdominal ultrasound (low sensitivity for choledocholithiasis in the distal common bile duct), contrast enhanced abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP), intraoperative cholangiogram, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) (fluoroscopically, by cholangioscopy or intraductal ultrasound). (clinicalpainadvisor.com)
  • through poor technique with incomplete filling of bile ducts with contrast during intraoperative cholangiogram, pancreatic stones in the head of the pancreas can be misinterpreted on imaging studies as being located in the CBD. (clinicalpainadvisor.com)
  • In contrast, conventional electroencephalography (EEG) electrodes monitor this activity from outside the skull. (wikipedia.org)
  • motor
  • Early studies suggested that baroreflexes dilate or have no effect, but recent studies in awake dogs suggested baroreflexes did not normally engage tonic vasoconstrictor efferents but during excitement systemic pressure rises may also trigger local sensory-motor dilator reflexes. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Lack of motor and sensory function after the reflex has returned indicates complete SCI. (wikipedia.org)
  • This technique allowed Sherrington to determine that the precentral gyrus (pre-Rolandic area) is a motor cortex and the postcentral gyrus (post-Rolandic area) is a sensory cortex. (wikipedia.org)
  • These findings, which were repeated by Harvey Cushing through the early 1900s, show that the Rolandic fissure is the point of separation between the motor and sensory cortices. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once the dura mater is peeled back, an electrode is placed on the brain to test motor, sensory, language, or visual function at a specific brain site. (wikipedia.org)
