Comprehensive guide to current practice of intraoperative neurophysiology

A new book entitled "Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring" has been published by Cambridge University Press, co-authored by Nationwide Children's Hospital Pediatric Neurologists Gloria M. Galloway, MD, and Khaled M. Zamel, MD; Marc R. Nuwer, MD, of UCLA; and Jaime R. Lopez, MD of Stanford University.

The publisher describes the book as a "comprehensive guide to the current practice of intraoperative neurophysiology with chapters on various modalities and clinical uses, anesthesia, operating room environment, special considerations in pediatrics and the interpretation and reporting of neurophysiologic data."

Because it is imperative that those performing and interpreting intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring are properly trained, the book was designed to be useful to trainees as well as neurophysiologists already in practice.

Galloway is director of the Evoked Potential Monitoring Program at Nationwide Children's and a professor of Clinical Neurology and Clinical Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Her interests are in clinical neuromuscular disease, electromyography and clinical neurophysiology. Zamel is an attending physician at Nationwide Children's and an assistant professor of Clinical Pediatrics and Clinical Neurology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He has clinical and research interest in epilepsy, intraoperative monitoring and pediatric stroke.
