ALM – Advanced Laryngeal Monitoring
High-tech technology for advanced signal recording in thyroid surgery
- Efficient end-to-end solution for ultimate reliability in IOM for thyroid surgery
- ALM Tube – tube for EMG signal recording with 360° surface sensor coverage and 8 long recording electrodes
- C2 Channel Select – software module for C2 Nerve Monitor for automatic selection of the optimal signal
- C2 Nerve Monitor – available as four or eight channel EMG monitor
C2 Channel Select Software for ultimate reliability
The innovative and user-friendly Channel Select Software, especially developed for the C2 NerveMonitor and application in thyroid surgery >>, automatically selects the optimal trace from the 4 channels of the ALM Tube and displays the strongest signal. This allows a seamless and reliable detection of muscle responses even under poor signal conditions.
8 contacts – 4 channels – 1 best signal
The ALM Tube (IOM accessories for thyroid surgery >>) is a multifunctional combination of a clear PVC ET tube and a surface electrode, together providing the best possible EMG signal recording from the vocal cords. Thanks to the easy placement of the recording electrode at the vocal cords and the extended length of the 8 sensor pads, the ALM Tube offers optimal signal recording of the M. vocalis during intraoperative neuromonitoring in thyroid surgery. The 360° surface sensor coverage with 8 long electrode contacts ensures ultimate signal stability, even if the tube is rotated or vertically shifted.
All signals are displayed acoustically and visually via the C2 NerveMonitor (IOM system for thyroid surgery >>). The C2 NerveMonitor is known as a smart specialist for various surgical applications, and is the result of inomed‘s several years of experience and intensive research in the field of intraoperative neuromonitoring.
Synergistic effects combined to one high-tech technology
Using the ALM technology, the users benefit from the synergistic effects of individual key technologies. The ALM Tube, C2 NerveMonitor, and the C2 Channel Select Software build an intelligent end-to-end solution, ensuring efficient application in thyroid surgery, especially during RLN monitoring.
Together with more than 25 years of expertise, ALM represents the most innovative cutting-edge technology for advanced signal recording and ultimate reliability in thyroid surgery to date.
