There are many things we find important to the world of healthcare and neuromonitoring. Here we post helpful information for our patients, hospitals, and surgeons.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Patients With Cardiovascular Conditions

By Admin on August 04, 2021

Surgery is always a serious undertaking. All things come with risks, and when a patient is under anesthesia and on the operating table, this is more true than ever. To further complicate these delicate procedures, patient history can significantly impact the success rate and complication risk. One of the ways a patient's history can most impact surgery lies in their cardiovascular health. A patient with hypertension or hyperlipidemia, for example, risks experiencing cardiovascular events, cerebrovascular events, bleeding, and mortality.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Patients With Multiple Spinal Conditions

By Admin on August 04, 2021

Chronic back pain, spine disorders, and associated conditions can be seriously debilitating. The spinal column is responsible for a large majority of our posture and balance. When the spine is not operating at peak performance, subsequent conditions are accelerated and exacerbated as strain is put on adjacent muscles, vertebrae, and nerves. Because of this domino effect, patients experiencing conditions like spondylolisthesis, spondylosis, and degenerative disc disease are at a greater risk for increased severity of their condition and additional complications.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Scoliosis and Sciatica

By Admin on May 04, 2021

Sciatica pain can be excruciatingly painful. According to Harvard Medical School, "Sciatica is one of the most common, yet misunderstood, types of pain. As many as 40% of people will get it during their life, and it becomes more frequent as you age." The condition's reach to large swaths of humanity makes it a serious issue. In some cases, sciatica can make walking difficult to impossible.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Patients With Pre Existing Heart Conditions

By Admin on May 04, 2021

A patient’s medical history is a critical component to providing them with the highest quality care. While the conditions a patient presents are at the forefront of their attention and the medical professional observing them, their preexisting conditions and comorbidities can also play a significant role in diagnosis and treatment. Accurately notating a patient’s history can provide life-saving information, especially when they are set to undergo surgery.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Adolescent Brainstem Tumor Surgeries

By Admin on May 04, 2021

Potential complications for brainstem surgeries become even more complicated when the brain is still undergoing development. While much is said about how puberty affects the adolescent body, it also alters their brain chemistry. Changes in hormones that attach to your brain cells change how the brain learns and grows. This shift in hormone balance makes tumor growth on young brains even more terrifying for patients and parents alike, making what we do at Axis Neuromonitoring that much more important.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM) for Patients With Preexisting Conditions

March 16, 2021

Spinal surgeries are synonymous with a long list of potential complications. If the surgery doesn't go according to plan, it can mean severe postoperative consequences for patients. Due to the spinal cord's proximity to the spinal column, even slight adjustments in patient positioning during surgery can result in muscle weakness or numbness. So what can be done when surgery needs to be performed, but the risk of doing so is mounting?
