Neurologist oversight for real-time neuromonitoring of over 45,000 orthopedic, neurosurgical, cardiovascular, and otologic surgeries annually.
We employ 18+ physicians who collectively provide services in all 50 states across the country.
Physician credentials in over 700 hospitals and providing services in over 1,300 health care facilities.
We have the ability to partner with diverse clients such as technical services providers, physician practices, hospitals or health care systems.
RTNA staff support several professional medical organizations including the AAN, ASNM, AES, ACNS, and ASET. Together, they serve on several boards as well as national committees and advisory groups, insurance payor committees, and committees that develop graduate competencies and curricula in electrodiagnostics. We have a presence in organized medicine on the state level and within the AMA, as well as an individual who serves as the medical director for Vanderbilt University’s Electroneurodiagnostic Technology Training Program. In addition to serving as a resource for regulatory and practice issues in IONM, we provide lectures on various topics in neurophysiology and neurodiagnostics including those for both technologists and physicians.
In order to fulfill the needs of neurophysiology monitoring companies, RTNA has developed a state of the art monitoring TeleNeurology and Neurophysiological platform. We help ensure your organization provides the highest level of neurological patient care.
This testing is used to protect cranial nerves during surgery. Cranial nerves are particularly susceptible to damage by mechanical trauma and ischemia during intracranial and extracranial surgery. The use of cranial nerve monitoring can prevent or reduce neurological injuries associated with surgery. A number of reliable electrodiagnostic techniques have been adapted specifically to identify and evaluate cranial nerve function during surgery, including electromyography and nerve conduction studies.
Cranial nerve Electromyography (EMG): The evaluation of spontaneous and evoked electromyogenic activity can be extremely useful in monitoring cranial nerve function. Spontaneous EMG activity in the anatomical distribution of these nerves can signal irritation of the cranial nerve.
Compound Nerve Action Potential (CNAP): This test is used to monitor cranial or peripheral nerves using electrodes to record nerve activity at one location while the nerve is being electrically stimulated at another location. CNAP is used to assess the function of a nerve and can also be used to map or identify a lesion in the nerve. Frequent direct stimulation of the specific nerve enables the neuromonitoring team to assist the surgeon and prevent damage to the nervous structures.
