After completing this class, students should be able to:
- Provide a safe recording environment
- Establish rapport with the patient and patient's family
- Demonstrate the correct method of electrode application
- Evaluate the integrity of the Evoked Potential
- Establish and eliminate or reduce artifacts contaminating the waveforms
- Explain neurological concepts of performing EP
- Compare and contrast principles and concepts of Evoked Potential instrumentation
