The third edition includes a scenario that a technologist is bound to encounter; arriving at the hospital prepared to monitor one type of procedure only to be told that a totally different procedure is scheduled. The value of the reference guide is presented in this scenario.
In addition to over 60 illustrations found in the previous edition 14 new illustrations of the cranial nerves are now included in the guide. These very well defined illustrations are labeled indicating needle placement and the action of the muscle.
A neurotechnologist checklist has been added as well. The checklist starts with the surgery scheduler and continues through the close of the case. “There are numerous variables that must be considered before, during and after monitoring a case. You wouldn’t take off in a plane without reviewing your checklist and you shouldn’t begin your monitoring without a checklist” says Dan Slepian, Director of Clinical and Surgical Services.
