A neurological intraoperative technologist works in a hospital alongside surgeons and anesthesiologists. This technologist is someone who both prepares patients for neuro-diagnostic procedures and conducts intraoperative monitoring procedures on patients. The purpose of the monitoring is to reduce the risk of neurological defects after patients have operations. Some of the technologies used by the technologist include electromyography, somatosensory-evoked potentials, and electroencephalography.
This type of work is both mental and physical. The technologists will have to be able to understand and record the medical data in the reports. The technologists will need to have good communication skills and will have to be flexible enough to be able to adapt to various situations, regarding recording the patient's information. In addition, the job has physical aspects, since the technologists will have to be able to lift, pull, and push both the patients and various pieces of equipment.
