The Audiologist’s Handbook of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring eBook PDF Download
The Audiologist’s Handbook of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring is an essential Guide for Audiologist My own introduction to the operating room environment happened in 1980, at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I was interested in investigating the neurophysiology of the auditory evoked middle latency response (MLR), specifically to determine whether it was mostly a myogenic response as suggested by some researchers in those days.
An opportunity came along courtesy of cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Elliot T. Gelfand, who allowed me to record responses in the operating room while the patient was under a neuromuscular blockade and general anesthesia and undergoing coronary bypass surgery.
Key Notes for the Audiologist’s Handbook of Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring
These are just a few of the questions that arise when the term “intraoperative neuromonitoring” is mentioned. In this book, I will attempt to provide satisfactory answers to those questions and more, so that the book can serve as a basic introduction and provide information about some aspects of neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring.
I hope that the contents of this book will be instructive and that the book will engender sufficient interest and curiosity so that the reader will endeavor to seek additional information about this interesting and clinically effective field.
While this book is intended primarily for audiology students and practicing audiologists, I believe that its contents will be of assistance and interest to other health care providers seeking information about intraoperative monitoring.
