NMP Technology for Surgeons

Intraoperative Neuromonitoring Technology. Assist The Surgical Plan. Enhance Patient Care.

NMP devices enable EMG monitoring of specific cranial nerves during complicated surgeries:
Neck Dissection, CN X, Vagus/RLN – Cobra,  DryTouch, Hummingbird, Scorpion
Submandibular Resection and Parotidectomy, CN VII Facial Nerve – Mastodon, DryTouch, Hummingbird TTP

NMP offers these unique EMG surgical devices to identify and assess the delicate craniofacial nerves at risk during ENT procedures:
Mastodon, EMG electrodes
Hummingbird TTP or DryTouch monopolar stimulation

Specific nerve monitoring devices use EMG (electromyography) to monitor and record the condition of the facial and recurrent laryngeal nerves during surgery to help reduce the risk of injury:
Thyroidectomy / Parathyroidectomy, CN X Vagus Nerve/RLN  – Cobra, Dragonfly, Scorpion, Hummingbird, DryTouch
Parotidectomy, CN VII Facial Nerve  – Scorpion, Hummingbird, DryTouch, Mastodon

Modern EMG nerve monitoring was developed by surgeons who sought to make RLN monitoring the norm and ensure access to technology¹. Founded by surgeons, Neurovision Medical Products has been a leader in the advances in EMG electrodes and nerve monitoring devices for many years.

Intraoperative monitoring can assist a maximal safe resection and reduce the risk of surgery-related nerve damage. Unique devices enable IOM during these complex procedures:
Skull Base Surgery, Acoustic Neuromas - Mastodon, Hummingbird, Drytouch

Craniotomies with Brain Mapping - Drytouch

Various Tumor Resections - Drytouch, Hummingbird

Tethered Cord - USE, Scorpion, Drytouch

Intraoperative monitoring in spine procedures uses EMG to deliver signals to guide pedicle screw placement, identify nerve location and warn of potential neuropraxia.
Cervical (anterior approach): Cobra, Dragonfly

Thoracic, Lumbar: Hummingbird BTP, DryTouch 

Tethered Cord, Sacral:  USE, BTP,  DryTouch
