Electroneurodiagnostic Technologist

Associate in Arts Degree Electroneurodiagnostic Technologist

Note: Starting summer 2013, this degree will become Neurodiagnostic Technology

Brief Description

The Electroneurodiagnostic Technologist (ENDT) operates sophisticated equipment that displays the electrical activity of the brain and nervous system for electroencephalography (EEG), nerve conduction studies, intraoperative monitoring, long-term epilepsy monitoring, polysomnography (PSG - sleep disorder studies) and evoked potential (EP). Generally working in a hospital or clinical setting, END technologists prepare patients for procedures, record electrical potentials, obtain medical histories, and calibrate and maintain equipment.

Learning Outcomes

Degree recipients should possess the skills and abilities described below:

  • Interpret accurate, diagnostically acceptable Electroneurodiagnostic tests in hospital or clinical laboratories
  • Apply neuroscience to Electroneurodiagnostic (END) recordings and diagnosis of disease conditions
  • Interpret the electrical display of END recordings
  • Practice patient-centered care in accordance with the ethical and legal framework of the ENDT
  • Collaborate as a member of the health care team to ensure clinical effectiveness
  • Evaluate END tests (i.e., intraoperative monitoring, nerve condition studies, ambulatory recordings, long-term video, EEG monitoring)
  • Operate END diagnostic instrumentation
  • Prepare written summary reports for the neurologist
  • Practice infection control
  • Apply theoretical knowledge to relate the END recordings to diagnosis of disease conditions
