CME Only Additional Information
Variables in Pedicle Screw Monitoring
Release date: June 1, 2016
Expiration date: June 1, 2019
Estimated time to complete activity: 1 hour
The presentation is designed for all monitorists to include electrophysiologists from neurophysiologic backgrounds, nurses, electroneurodiagnostic technologists, audiologists, and other practitioners involved with patients where neurophysiologic monitoring is used and who wish to expand their knowledge.
At the completion of this activity, the participants will:
1. Be able to identify what constitutes the Persistently Electrified Pedicle Stimulation Instruments (PEPSI) technique.
2. Understand that cortical bone density variations can affect the cortical bone’s overall anisotropic electrical resistivity and resultantly the electrical threshold of the stimulated pedicle hole or screw.
3. Be able to identify what variables impact bi-cortical sacral pedicle screw testing
