Children, like adults, are at risk for neurological injury during a variety of surgical procedures. Intraoperative electrophysiological monitoring (IOM) provides information about the functional integrity of the nervous system during surgery. This information may determine the mechanism of injury and prevent damage by identifying nerves and detecting dysfunction at a reversible stage. Electrophysiological techniques may also help direct therapy by improving injury localization, detect the… CONTINUE READING
