Automated EMG/SSEP monitored
In this study, all patients will be monitored for SSEP and EMG. For SSEP monitoring, surface adhesive electrodes will be used for both stimulation and recording. After an automatic impedance check, the baseline subcortical SSEP will be established at the beginning of each case, and the amplitude and latency of the waveforms will be measured. For EMG monitoring, 6 Surface electrodes will be attached to the same muscle groups of the conventional intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring machine. In each case, the Compound Muscle Action Potentials (CMAPs) of each muscle group will be monitored.
As this is an observational study, no intervention is planned.
- The feasibility of using EPAD 2.0 automated device to successfully monitor the patients in spine surgery. [ Time Frame: Intraoperative ]The feasibility is determined by the percentage of patients being successfully monitored in spine surgery using the EPAD 2.0 automated device (i.e. [number of patients being successfully monitored/ total number of patients being recruited]*100).
