ECoG – half day

$495.00

Electrocochleography (ECoG) – half day (4 hours)
ECoG is a unique diagnostic tool in the evaluation of hydro-mechanical function of the cochlea. It is most commonly used in the diagnostic battery for Meniere’s Disease and subsequent monitoring. As the “Glaucoma” of the ear, Meniere’s creates an increase in inner ear fluid pressure within the membranous labyrinth creates a distortion

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of the ECoG module, students will be able to…

1. Describe the anatomical and physiological response of the ECoG
2. Explain the parameters of Action and Summating Potentials amplitude ratios
3. Demonstrate competency-administrating protocols for the adult population using an extra-tympanic (ear canal) electrode.
4. Interpret the test results from the test and correlate all finding into a coherent report.
