Neurodiagnostic Technology Principles and Practicum II expands on the basic concepts learned in electroencephalogram (EEG) technology and Practicum I and will introduce the advanced concepts of EEG technology. This course also covers the basic concepts of instrumentation including hardware, polarity, localization and filters. Students will learn The American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) Guidelines for more complex EEG recordings, such as cerebral brain death studies and pediatric recording requirements. Students will also be trained to recognize more complex EEG patterns such as the maturing EEG of a neonate, abnormal patterns associated with multiple neurologic conditions and patterns of unknown significance.
NOTE: Student must pass each Clinical Competency Exam with at least a 70%. Students must achieve a "C" or better in each NDT course within the Neurodiagnostic Technology Program in order to progress sequentially to the next course.
NDT 100, NDT 101 all with grade C or better Coreq. NDT 102
