In many San Antonio hospitals Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IOM) is used to evaluate the functional integrity of the nervous system with the goal of improving the patient’s surgical outcome. During surgery, data is collected from the patient’s brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves to provide surgeons with real-time assessment of the patient’s neurophysiological condition. This reduces risk to their nervous system by informing the surgeons decision to stop or reverse actions in order to prevent or reduce neurologic damage.
In San Antonio, IONM assists surgeons and protects patients by continuously monitoring your central and peripheral nervous system(s). The use of IONM can help your surgeon immediately identify surgical events that could lead to nerve damage. IONM is also useful in helping your surgeon identify nerves that may be otherwise obscured by surrounding tissue.
Neuromonitoring has become part of the standard of care for surgeries that potentially place elements of the nervous system at risk. EPIOM works each surgeon to tailor a specific monitoring strategy for each procedure that will provide comprehensive coverage for the structures at risk. At EPIOM, our team constantly monitors information that our neuro monitoring tests provide, allowing us to alert the surgeon, doctors, and nurses if there are any potential problems or changes.
