London Neuromonitoring & Brain Mapping International Course
Dates: 20th&21st November 2020
Target Audience: Neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists and neuroanaesthetists of all grades and experience
The course is run over 2 days, designed for any professional working with patients having operations using neurophysiological monitoring
This year, the event will be held as an online webinar to ensure that we stay within the new Covid-19 guidelines.
Following the success of the previous courses we are delighted to announce the fourth London Neuromonitoring and Mapping International Course which will attract individuals from a variety of specialities including neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, neurologists, professionals in neuromonitoring, general practitioners, anaesthetists, nurses, researchers and those with an interest in intraoperative neuromonitoring and brain mapping.
The London Neuromonitoring and Mapping International Course is a two-day course. It provides the attendees with a unique approach whereby both the neurophysiologist and the neurosurgeon deliver the teaching side-by-side giving a realistic environment and extensive knowledge into the daily workings of the operating theatre.
The first day will provide delegates with knowledge on the principles of intraoperative neuromonitoring and brain and spinal cord mapping. The neurophysiological principles and the clinical interpretation of MEPs, SSEPs, D-WAVES, VEPs, EEG and EcoG will be analised. Principles and techniques of direct electrical stimulation for brain and spinal cord mapping will be discussed. The setup for intraoperative neuromonitoring will be shown and hands-on demonstrations with the intraoperative neuromonitoring equipment will be available. Anaesthetic considerations for intraoperative neuromonitoring will be also discussed.
The second day will demonstrate how to perform intraoperative neuromonitoring and direct mapping in Spine Surgery, Brainstem Surgery and Brain Surgery. Each section will include the anatomy, the physiology and the pathophysiology and the different intraoperative neuromonitoring techniques necessary to tailor neurophysiological strategies to each patient. Case studies will be shown and hands-on demonstration on different intraoperative neuromonitoring equipment will be available.
The course will also cover cortical and sub-cortical brain mapping techniques for motor, language and higher order functions and their correlation with the extra-operative mapping with Transmagnetic Stimulation.
We are certain the highly educational content of the course will make your experience unforgettable and truly worthwhile.
The course will run in a series of short lectures with opportunity for discussion and questions in a relaxed yet informative environment as well as hands on workshops. Places are limited so book now!
This course that runs over 2 days is designed for any professional working with patients having operations using neurophysiological monitoring. Neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists and neuroanaesthetists of all grades and experience have attended the course and given very positive feedback. The lectures are designed to start from the basic knowledge of spontaneous and evoked potentials and evolve through, increasing in complexity to clinical scenarios.
There is no need for previous experience in the area of neuro physiological testing but the course will teach up to an experienced users standard.
We would encourage anyone looking to gain increased experience in the evolving field to attend and enjoy being educated further by experts with backgrounds in neurosurgery, neurophysiology and neuroanaesthesia.
