ORIMtec, a leading provider of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring in Northern California, has just released a recorded class on anterior and posterior cervical surgeries. For the first time, information on how to monitor cervical surgeries is available online to healthcare professions who work in the operating room environment. Covering both anterior and posterior approaches, Dan Slepian, PA, CNIM steps the student through spinal anatomy with animations of anterior and posterior cervical diskectomies.
“This 60 minute training class is designed for technologists who perform intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring or IONM. Since the surgeon is not narrating each step of the cervical procedure while it is occurring, the technologist must follow the procedure based upon the surgical instrument being used in order to monitor the proper structure at the right time,” says Dan. Throughout the presentation specific references are made to the appropriate surgical instruments being used to reinforce the sequence and equipment types being used by the surgeon.
ORIMtec also offers live, interactive classes which allow for questions and answers, however, the recorded version enables the student to view the class at his or her convenience, and questions can be submitted online via email for a timely response. ORIMtec plans on releasing several more recorded classes as each is developed.
