Intraoperative Monitoring I - CLNP5006

Year - 2020

Unexpected postoperative neurologic deficit is arguably one of the most devastating potential complications of surgery. This unit examines the fundamental neurophysiological techniques necessary for continuous functional monitoring of the human nervous system during at risk surgical procedures. In particular, this unit provides the theoretical and practical knowledge underpinning somatosensory evoked potentials, brainstem auditory evoked potentials, motor evoked potentials and electromyography as they relate to various surgical disciplines.

Online learning, webinars and/or discussion forums, 1 day face-to-face workshop (compulsory)

Online quizzes (10%); 2x short essays (30%); clinical case discussions (10%); online exam (50%). Students must score a minimum of 50% in the exam to pass the unit of study.
