During the last three decades IONM has followed an objective probability-based clinical model whichfocused attention almost exclusively upon the detection of specific events IONM practices, however, donot neatly conform to those of conventional clinical testing procedures.  It is suggested herein that futureefforts be directed toward developing additional models which elucidate the dynamic and subjectivequalities of IONM and recognize the importance of sequences and their influence upon decision making. Heretofore, the temporal and linguistic aspects of IONM have been largely ignored.  It is proposed that weexamine IOMN as an ongoing interactive process, and develop new tools to help accomplish this task.
