The same holds true in neuromonitoring. Make sure all preparation has been completed, precautions taken and anticipation of the numerous variables affecting monitoring modalities have been assessed in advance of the surgery. This Reference Guide is your pre-flight check list.
Rancho Cordova, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2008
ORIMtec, a California based neuromonitoring company, has released the first Neurotechnologist Reference Guide. The reference guide includes the same procedural information that has made ORIMtec the top surgical monitoring service company in Northern California.
Neurotechnologists monitor to detect impending damage to the nervous system and alert the operating surgeon to reduce the risk of injury to the central and peripheral nervous system during cranial and spinal surgeries. It is a crticial role. Until now, there has been no systematic tool for neurotechnologists to use to ensure they are taking all necessary steps to monitor surgery successfully.
"You wouldn't fly an airplane without a check list to confirm all critical tasks have been completed before leaving the ground," said Dan Slepian, Vice President and Director of Clinical and Surgical Services for ORIMtec. "The same holds true in neuromonitoring. Make sure all preparation has been completed, precautions taken and anticipation of the numerous variables affecting monitoring modalities have been assessed in advance of the surgery. This Reference Guide is your pre-flight check list."
The Neurotechnologist Reference Guide reviews topics as basic as navigating the operating room and preparing for the monitoring event to detailed trouble shooting checklists. A guide of anesthetics provides a quick reference of their function and potential affects on neural responses.
"We believe the Neurotechnologist Reference Guide will improve surgical outcomes, creating healthier patients and a better quality of life," said Slepian. "We're proud to offer this guide and feel it is an innovation in the field."
ORIMtec, the industry leader in providing Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM), a cutting-edge, biomedical service that reduces the risk of injury to the nervous system during head, neck and back surgeries. ORIMtec's mission is to enhance the safety of the surgical procedure and improve the quality of patient care, using IONM to maximize positive surgical outcomes. ORIMtec provides surgical monitoring that raises the standard of care.
