  1. SEP
  2. Plethysmography (venous)
  3. Impedance Cardiography (ICG)
  4. Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  5. Electromyogram (EMG)
  1. a A graphic recording of the electrical impulses that the heart generates during the cardiac cycle
  2. b Measures changes in the volume of an extremity; usually performed on a leg to exclude DVT (deep vein thrombosis)
  3. c somatosensory evoked potential
  4. d A record of muscle contraction produced by electrical stimulation
  5. e A flexible and fast-acting noninvasive monitoring system that measures total impedance (resistance to the flow of electricity in the heart)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. A catheter placed in an artery that continuously measures the patient's blood pressure
  2. A diagnostic or therapeutic technique that does not require the skin to be broken or a cavity or organ of the body to be entered

  5. An image made up of a series of dots, each indicating a single ultrasonic echo. The position of a dot corresponds to the time elapsed, and the brightness of a dot corresponds to the strength of the echo.

5 True/False questions

  1. Echocardiogram (2-D M-Mode Echo)A diagnostic, noninvasive procedure in which ultrasound is used to study the structure and motion of the heart


  2. Nerve Conduction Study (NCS)This study measures how well individual nerves can transmit electrical signals (often performed with an electromyogram)


  3. ApneaThe cessation of breathing


  4. VEPvisual evoked potential


  5. EndoscopeA tubular instrument (rigid or flexible) with a light source and a viewing lens for observation that can be inserted through a body orifice or through a small incision
