NDT 353 Evoked Potential Studies • 5 Cr.

Description

Students will learn to test the integrity of the central nervous system through administering a series of sensory stimulus exams. Students will be exposed to methods for assessing the visual, auditory, and somatosensory pathways. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor.

Outcomes

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
