COLUMBIA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Impulse Monitoring, Inc. (IMI), a leading provider of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) services to hospitals, today announced that it has signed an agreement to provide comprehensive IONM services, including physician oversight, to Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters, Norfolk, VA.
“Safeguarding the health and safety of children during complex surgeries is a key IMI expertise,” said Gene Cattarina, Impulse Monitoring president and CEO. “We are pleased to provide this critical layer of monitoring protection to Children’s Hospital.”
IONM assesses neurological function involving the brain, spinal cord and related nerve structures during such surgeries. Use of IONM facilitates the surgical process and can reduce surgical risk by providing alerts to surgeons of potential harm to the spinal cord or neural structures. Under the Impulse Monitoring model, technicians or neurophysiologists located in the operating room work in partnership with supervising physicians who oversee the interpretation of neurophysiological data gathered via real-time broadband transmission.
