Based on methodology, the report categorizes the global intraoperative neuromonitoring market into the following segments:

  • Electrophysiological (EP) monitoring
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • Electromyography (EMG)

Electrophysiological (EP) monitoring

EP is an electrical signal generated by the nervous system. EP monitoring includes SEP monitoring and TcMEP monitoring. These two together account for the generation of more than 73% of the overall market revenue,” says Barath Palada, a lead analyst at Technavio for patient monitoring devices research.

SEP monitoring is used to record the responses of the sensory pathways to an electrical stimuli to evaluate the functional integrity of the central nervous system (CNS) pathways during surgery. Whereas, transcranial (Tc) MEP monitoring is used to measure the neuroelectric signals from the spinal cord and peripheral muscles to limit the risk and severity of a neurosurgical injury.

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

Electroencephalograms are used to detect anomalies in the brain by monitoring and analyzing its electrical activity. It was initially used to ensure the safety of the patients during carotid endarterectomy and cardiopulmonary bypass by monitoring and tracking patterns to evaluate cortical structures. Currently, EEGs are used as a monitoring and mapping tool to detect early dysfunction, intraoperative monitoring during carotid endarterectomy, during aneurysm repair when carotid clamping is needed, and during a hypothermic circulatory arrest for cardiac surgery.

Electromyography (EMG)

EMG monitoring is used to detect the electrical potential of muscle cells when they are neurologically or electrically activated. It enhances the safety of procedures such as cranial nerve surgeries, peripheral nerve surgeries, and spinal nerve root surgeries,” says Barath.

EMG monitoring can detect nerve damage, additional traction, and other impairments in peripheral nerves during surgeries. The commonly used EMG techniques include stimulated EMG, free-running EMG, and nerve conduction studies (NCS). Surgeons use EMG to screen, guide, and save the integrity of the nervous system and cranial nerves.
