This course provides ongoing clinical instruction and an evaluation method for students to demonstrate clinical competency for electroencephalogram (EEG) procedures and advanced monitoring. During this semester the students will apply critical thinking skills in order to distinguish the monitoring techniques in the operating room and long term monitoring environment. During clinical rotations the students will generate a hypothesis based on the evidence of the data of the history and technologist’s assessment of the patient. This course introduces the students to advanced monitoring techniques performed in the Epilepsy monitoring unit, Neonatal and Adult Intensive Care Units, as well as multiple procedures performed in the operating room.
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.
