The course in Neuro-electro-physiology enables the students to assess the patient and plan various electro- diagnostic procedures and implement them. The candidate thus trained, is called as a Neuro-electrophysiology Technologist, who is an integral part of the neurology team.
The student will be able to achieve technical skills needed to conduct various diagnostic procedures and their interpretations as a part of the training. He/she will be trained in the EEG lab, plan montages and do the recording without artefacts and should also be well versed with the technical aspects and preparations of provisional reports. The students get familiarized with semi logy of various seizure types, giving first aid in case of emergency and seek timely medical help when needed. In the neuro-physiology lab, they can assist neurologists in Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCV) procedures and get an opportunity for basic interpretation of the findings. Theoretical, technical and basic knowledge of procedures like Visual Evoked Potential (VEP), Somatosensory Evoked Potential (SS EP), Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response (BAER) will be taught during the course. Further the student will also learn to conduct various clinical and technical tests in the autonomic lab and hands on training in sleep lab, clinical interpretations, sleep staging based of Epworths scale and procedure skills in Polysomnography (PSG).
Eligibility: B.Sc. In any Branch of science, preferably Physics Job opportunity: Can work as a neurotechnologist in leading hospitals in India and abroad. There are opportunities for teaching and research in this field.
