Intraoperative monitoring (IOM) systems are pivotal tools in surgeries involving the nervous system. These systems provide real-time feedback on the functional status of neural pathways, aiding surgeons in preventing unintended damage during surgical procedures. In essence, an IOM system acts as an extra safety measure, optimizing surgical outcomes and reducing the risk of neural damage.
The Xltek Protektor 16 Channel IOM System is equipped with functionalities like TcMEP, SSEP, BAER, and more. Designed for adaptability, the Protektor IOM System excels in intraoperative monitoring for spinal or neurosurgical procedures. It boasts a user-friendly interface, flexible data display options, and supports remote monitoring.
Another system, the Cadwell Cascade, can perform a range of tests simultaneously, including as EP, EMG, EEG, and more. Designed for portability, the lightweight system can be used either with a laptop or a desktop. Its amplifier uses crosspoint technology, combining the benefits of referential and differential amplifiers. The system's unique shielding minimizes interference, and its input extenders allow optimal signal fidelity even when placed away from the operating table.
Subdermal needles are crucial in intraoperative monitoring (IOM), a technique used during surgeries to safeguard neural structures from potential damage. These thin, stainless steel electrodes are inserted just beneath the skin to record neural electrical activity. They offer high-quality signals due to their proximity to neural sources, making them invaluable for monitoring brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve functions during procedures. Easily placed and minimally disruptive, their precise readings aid surgeons in making informed decisions, ultimately enhancing patient safety and post-operative outcomes.
The Rhythmlink Disposable Paired 13 mm Subdermal Needle Electrodes, known for their superior quality in clinics and operating rooms, are cost-effective and ultra-sharp for precise skin penetration, suitable for both recording and stimulating. These electrodes, made of high-tensile stainless steel, offer adjustable leadwire separation to fit various applications and patients. They also feature a durable safety connector and a peel-back pouch for easy transfer to sterile fields.
Transcranial Electrical Stimulators
Transcranial Electrical Stimulation (tES) is a non-invasive technique that uses electrical currents on the scalp to impact brain activity. It's used for research and potential treatments for conditions like depression. While affordable and portable, its results can vary, highlighting the need for consistent guidelines and proper use.
One stimulator of note is the Cadwell TCS-4 Transcranial Electrical Stimulator. The TCS-4 offers four user-selectable outputs, integrates seamlessly with Cascade Surgical Studio software, and delivers powerful pulses up to 1000 V. This flexibility and strength, combined with the option to place multiple TCeMEP stim montages, make the TCS-4 a notable choice.
