AudiologyNOW! 2016: Intraoperative Neuromonitoring of the Auditory and Facial Nerves (.1 CEUs)
Recorded On: 04/15/2016
Intraoperative Neuromonitoring of the Auditory and Facial Nerves
Recorded April 15, 2016 at AudiologyNOW! 2016
Duration: 1 Hour
Presenters: Melanie Venne, AuD., BCS-IOM, CNIM and Carolyn Bower, AuD., CNIM, BCS-IOM
Who Should Attend: This lecture is for those professionals who are interested in neurophysiological intraoperative monitoring (NIOM), specifically of the auditory and facial nerves.
Instructional Level: Introductory
Program Focus: Knowledge
Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:
- Describe surgical procedures in which intraoperative monitoring of the auditory and facial nerves are utilized.
- Describe the NIOM modalities used to monitor cranial nerves.
- Recognize changes in NIOM data.
Description: Neurophysiological Intraoperative Monitoring (NIOM) of the auditory and facial nerves is commonly performed during many surgeries. This lecture will cover the surgeries in which auditory and facial nerve monitoring is used, and the modalities used to monitor them. For example, performing Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) during surgical treatment of acoustic neuromas. A neuroanatomy and neurophysiology review of these structures will also be included, as well as case studies illustrating the importance of NIOM during neurosurgical operations.
