Signals returned as decompression was achieved. Interpretation The most commonly used criteria for identifying a significant degradation of the SEPs are drop in amplitude below 50% of the baseline and/or a latency prolongation of 10% over the baseline value. These criteria are based on clinical experience and standards may vary among NIOM groups. Application of these “standard” criteria may need to be modified in cases where signals are of poor initial quality or where confounding systemic factors exist, such as alteration of anesthetic gases, low level of neuromuscular blockade, dramatic blood loss, or other metabolic derangements.

2 Example of artifact caused by electrocautery. This was seen when tibial somatosensory evoked potentials were being averaged. 3 A cardiopulmonary bypass machine. This machine can also be used to administer anesthetic agents and other drugs as well as for inducing hypothermia. 4 An operating surgical microscope. During surgery, this microscope will be draped with sterile sheets. the microscope moving in and out of the field. There is rarely an artifact problem related to the microscope. The microscope will be sterile and draped prior to the start of the case and should not be touched once draped.

During x-rays, including those taken with the C-arm (fluoroscopy), the technologist should either exit the room or wear lead protection covering at least the reproductive organs and thyroid. Gloves should always be worn when handling a patient, as this is fundamental to universal precautions. Infection Control The NIOM team should always practice universal precautions for infection control. If needle electrodes are being used, the skin should be prepped with alcohol skin prep. Needle electrodes are for a single use only and should be disposed of in a sharps container.
