Intraoperative Neuromonitoring is the use of electrophysiological methods such as electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), and the potential that arises to monitor the functional integrity of certain neural structures. Nerve monitoring during surgery is used to monitor and limit possible injuries to the patient's nervous system during spinal surgery.

During the operation, the nerve monitoring system helps the surgeon prevent damage to the nervous system by identifying nerve structures during the operation. The system identifies gradual threats to the nervous system and warns surgeons before reaching the patient's injury threshold.
Neurological diseases encompass the brain, spine, and the nerve disorders. The neurovascular systems are dependent on the continuous supply of oxygen and nutrients. The supply of oxygen and nutrients to the brain is essential for its working. Therefore, a defect in the system can impair the function and become a life-threatening factor. Neurological complications include stroke and spinal cord ischemia. During recent years, the prevalence of neurological disorders has increased significantly. For instance, the cerebral aneurysm is one of the neurovascular diseases that is rising significantly worldwide. Nearly 30,000 people in the US suffer from brain aneurysm rupture every year.
Rising prevalence of neurological diseases is anticipated to drive the need for the IONM, in turn, increasing demand for IONM products worldwide.
