Christopher Pace

Center for Electroneuro diagnostics / Neuro Alert Monitoring Services

Chris serves as the Director of the Center for Electroneurodiagnostics, an Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring (IONM) school and as Chief Clinical Officer at Neuro Alert Monitoring Services, an IONM provider in the US. In addition, Chris is currently on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Neurophysiologic Monitoring, one of the major groups in the US responsible for advancing the field of IONM.

Following his graduate and postdoctoral work on nerve cellular anatomy and physiology, Chris leapt into the field of IONM, where he has contributed ever since. He has supported monitoring companies, both large and small, building many aspects of their IONM services, including policies and procedures, quality assurance, competency evaluation, and education and training. He has also played a pivotal role in obtaining for these groups the mark of quality, official accreditation from the Joint Commission.

With his career-spanning passion for neuroscience as an academic foundation, Chris considers himself lucky to integrate this scientific interest with clinical applications in service to patients.

Chris is an enthusiastic educator/lecturer who emphasizes quality and knowledge in the delivery of neuromonitoring, and he hopes that he inspires you to explore the field of IONM

Localizing and protecting eloquent brain tissues using Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring

Localizing and protecting eloquent brain tissues using Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring
Portions of the brain, the so called eloquent tissues, have greater direct contribution to normal function. These include the primary sensory, motor and language cortices. Surgery on the brain, whether its intention is the resection of a lesion like a tumor or a malfunctioning nodule such as a seizure locus, has profound impacts on a patient. Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring (IONM) is a valuable tool for neurosurgery particularly as it relates to the localization and protection of these eloquent regions. In the operating room, a surgeon combines the perspective from pre-operative imaging with the results of IONM-dependent functional testing to accomplish the most extensive and accurate objectives of the surgery while protecting the relevant neural and vascular tissues of the surrounding, healthy brain. This presentation will give an introduction to the IONM used to help surgeons localize and protect eloquent cortices and to demonstrate how it is employed in specific cases.
