First Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring

Joint Cross-Atlantic Educational Symposium

November 4-6, 2010

University Medical Center Groningen

The Netherlands


The ASNM is excited to announce a symposium overseas to promote education of intraoperative neurophysiology for physicians and support staff. The symposium is being organized in cooperation with the newly formed International Society on Intraoperative Neurophysiology (ISIN).

Course Description

This symposium provides comprehensive updates for neurolophysiologic monitoring professionals and advanced practitioners who collaborate on the neuromonitoring team, as well as surgeons and anesthesiologists who require intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) during procedures. Experts from the international IONM community will examine common and important updates, including:

  • SEP & Transcranial Motor Evoked Potentials and EMG for spine surgery,
  • Auditory Evoked Potentials and Cranial Nerve monitoring for craniotomy and skull- based monitoring,
  • EEG and SEP for carotid endarterectomy and aneurysm monitoring, didactic sessions and interactive panel forums will focus on pre-existing conditions, data analysis, anesthetic considerations, complications and troubleshooting.

You find the complete brochure here.

Program Chair & Host: H. Louis Journee, MD, PhD
ASNM Chairwoman: Rebecca Clark Bash

Joint Sponsorship by the

  • American Society of Neurophysiological Monitoring
  • International Society of Intraoperative Neurophysiology
  • Tufts University School of Medicine



Target audience

Intraoperative monitoring professionals, Neurophysiologists, Neurosurgeons, Neurologists, Orthopedists, ENT Surgeons, Anesthesiologists, Nurses, Audiologists.

Professionals involved in interventional intraoperative neuromonitoring of evoked potentials, EMG and EEG during surgical procedures.

Symposium Objectives

At the completion of this symposium, participants should be able to:

  1. discuss the comprehensive principles for conducting and interpreting intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring across multimodality applications of IONM,
  2. identify neuroanatomy and neurophysiology relevant to IOM,
  3. describe the principles and methods of recording and monitoring,
  4. identify the elements for clinical decision making during IOM,
  5. identify the basic aspects related to the business of IOM.
