CLNP5007: Intraoperative Monitoring II

This unit of study builds on CLNP5006 and focuses on how multimodal monitoring can be used in a broad range of cranial, spinal and peripheral nerve procedures to minimise the likelihood of neurological trauma. Students will acquire the theoretical knowlede and practical skills to perform the various modalities of intraoperatrive neurophysiological monitoring and understand the structures at risk during a particular surgery.

Code CLNP5007
Academic unit Clinical Neurophysiology
Credit points 6
CLNP5001 and CLNP5006

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. describe the surgical principles and anatomy at risk for procedures involving the central and peripheral nervous systems
  • LO2. describe in depth the neurophysiological modalities capable of detection and mitigation of impending neural injury
  • LO3. effectively recognise and communicate neurophysiological changes indicative of impending neural injury
  • LO4. apply your knowledge by discussing various real-life clinical scenarios.
