Abstract

In this work, clinical results of a wireless recording system for intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring during a spine correction surgery are reported. The wireless modules connecting directly to the subdermal needle electrodes transmit the waveforms detected in certain muscle areas to a computer via telemetry for real-time display, analysis and storage. Sufficient gain, bandwidth and digitalization preserve the integrity of the neural signal waveforms throughout the surgery. The feasibility of using wireless communication to quantitatively document the health of patient's neural system during spine manipulation is demonstrated. The waveforms are recorded in real time with high accuracy to assess the risks of injury. This demonstration validates the potentials for wireless signal acquisition in clinical settings and can enable more applications for precise diagnosis with benefits of elimination cluttered wires and electromagnetic interferences.
