Comprehensive Intraoperative Neuromonitoring & Continuous Bedside EEG & Epilepsy Concurrent Courses: A neurodiagnostic and neuromonitorist symposium

  • Saturday and Sunday, March 21-22, 2015
  • Overlook Medical Center, Summit, New Jersey

Target Audience

Neurophysiologists, Neurodiagnostic Technologists, Neurologists, Surgeons, Anesthesiologists, Nurses, Audiologists and medical practitioners credentialed in EEG, D.ABNM , CNIM , EP, CLTM and involved in interventional intraoperative neurodiagnostics in the epilepsy and surgical monitoring environment.

Course Description

This symposium provides an important update for epilepsy diagnostic care professionals and advanced practitioners who are involved in intraoperative neuromonitoring. Experts in neurology and intraoperative monitoring will examine common and important methods, including:

Course I – Intraoperave Neuromonitoring:

  • Advances in monitoring method in the operating room.
  • Compliance & Joint Commission Information for 2015
  • Advanced Skull based monitoring

Course II – cEEG & Epilepsy:

  • Long Term Monitoring Updates
  • Trending tools and advantages.in bedside cEEG
  • Analysis of EEG
  • Monitoring during Epilepsy surgery
  • Didactic sessions and interactive panel debates will focus on preexisting conditions, data review, pharmacology, complications and troubleshooting.

Conference Objectives:

Upon completion of this conference, participants should bebetter able to:

  • Understand data analysis and interact with ancillary care professionals
  • Effectively apply care techniques to enhance patient care.
  • Formulate appropriate plan of action when presented with challenging data results.
