Spinal Cord Stimulation Programming: Basics, Science, Coding

This crucial and exciting workshop will present the principles needed to program your spinal cord stimulation patients (SCS), understand the science behind electricity to neural tissue, explore waveforms and new technology, and understand the coding of programming in your practice. The target audience is clinicians that currently utilize or are interested in incorporating SCS programming into your clinical practice. The field of neuromodulation is rapidly evolving and several technologies are now clinically available. These systems have diverse lead and stimulation paradigms. It is not always clear how different designs or waveform parameters affect the neural response and corresponding efficacy of the stimulation. Therefore, the goal of this course is to provide clinicians with a framework to understand and implement programming in their practice.

Introduction to Intraoperative Neuromonitoring for Spinal Cord Stimulation

The field of neuromodulation is rapidly evolving and the use of intraoperative neuromonitoring for Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) has grown tremendously for both interventional pain physicians and surgeons. The Neurostimulation Appropriateness Consensus Committee (NACC) guidelines recommend that any sedated/asleep patient having a SCS placed have intraoperative neuromonitoring for both safety and confirmation of lead placement. This timely and first of its kind workshop will present the principles needed to implement and use intraoperative neuromonitoring for your SCS patients. It will review the basics of set up, interpretation of data, implementation in practice, and the future uses. The target audience is any clinicians that currently use SCS in their practice. This will be valuable and needed for those placing SCS in sedated patients, but also those who may be interested in implanting this rapidly growing change in care. The goal of this course is to provide clinicians with a framework to understand and implement intraoperative neuromonitoring in their practice.
