The onset of nerve ischemia may be irritative under appropriate conditions, but under most conditions we consider ischemia to be nonirritative and therefore no EMG may be present. As a result, compressive nerve insults may yield variable EMG correlates if coincident ischemia blocks axonal depolarization. In addition, any source of neuromuscular dysfunction distal to the site of surgical irritation will reduce sensitivity from EMG monitoring and allow false-negative results. These include distal nerve compression or ischemia, distal neuropathy, limb ischemia, excessive neuromuscular junction blockade, or inexcitable myopathy.

When a surgery is performed at the cervical level, it is best that the entire subcortical signal be generated above the level of surgery so that it will be reliably affected should a cervical-level cord injury occur. For this purpose a mastoid or ear electrode is referenced to FPz to record a signal that is generated at or above the foramen magnum. In this case a cervical-level electrode is omitted so that the associated spinal cord generators do not contribute to the recorded subcortical signal.
