Heart Conduction System
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
Ringo, Doty, Demeter and Simard, Cerebral Cortex 1994;4:331-343: a proof of the need for the spatial clustering of interneuronal connections to enhance cortical computation. (1/3268)It has been argued that an important principle driving the organization of the cerebral cortex towards local processing has been the need to decrease time lost to interneuronal conduction delay. In this paper, I show for a simplified model of the cerebral cortex, using analytical means, that if interneuronal conduction time increases proportional to interneuronal distance, then the only way to increase the numbers of synaptic events occurring in a fixed finite time period is to spatially cluster interneuronal connections.

Spinal cord-evoked potentials and muscle responses evoked by transcranial magnetic stimulation in 10 awake human subjects. (2/3268)Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TCMS) causes leg muscle contractions, but the neural structures in the brain that are activated by TCMS and their relationship to these leg muscle responses are not clearly understood. To elucidate this, we concomitantly recorded leg muscle responses and thoracic spinal cord-evoked potentials (SCEPs) after TCMS for the first time in 10 awake, neurologically intact human subjects. In this report we provide evidence of direct and indirect activation of corticospinal neurons after TCMS. In three subjects, SCEP threshold (T) stimulus intensities recruited both the D wave (direct activation of corticospinal neurons) and the first I wave (I1, indirect activation of corticospinal neurons). In one subject, the D, I1, and I2 waves were recruited simultaneously, and in another subject, the I1 and I2 waves were recruited simultaneously. In the remaining five subjects, only the I1 wave was recruited first. More waves were recruited as the stimulus intensity increased. The presence of D and I waves in all subjects at low stimulus intensities verified that TCMS directly and indirectly activated corticospinal neurons supplying the lower extremities. Leg muscle responses were usually contingent on the SCEP containing at least four waves (D, I1, I2, and I3). (+info)
Multiple point electrical stimulation of ulnar and median nerves. (3/3268)A computer-assisted method of isolating single motor units (MUs) by multiple point stimulation (MPS) of peripheral nerves is described. MPS was used to isolate 10-30 single MUs from thenar and hypothenar muscles of normal subjects and patients with entrapment neuropathies, with the original purpose of obtaining a more representative mean motor unit potential for estimating the number of MUs in a muscle. The two important results that evolved from MPS however, were: (1) in the absence of 'alternation' MUs were recruited in an orderly pattern from small to large, and from longer to shorter latencies by graded electrical stimulation in both normal and pathological cases, (2) a comparison of the sizes of MUs recruited by stimulation proximal and distal to the elbow suggested that axonal branching can occur in the forearm 200 mm or more proximal to the motor point in intrinsic hand muscles.

Acute conduction velocity changes in guinea-pigs after administration of diphenylhydantoin. (4/3268)Motor nerve conduction velocity was measured after dosing guinea-pigs with 200-400 mumol/kg diphenylhydantoin (DPH) daily for three to four days. Conduction velocity fell by a mean value of 13% in animals that achieved plasma DPH levels over 200 mumol/l. There was no change in velocity with DPH levels below this value. (+info)
Electrophysiological evidence for tetrodotoxin-resistant sodium channels in slowly conducting dural sensory fibers. (5/3268)A tetrodotoxin (TTX)-resistant sodium channel was recently identified that is expressed only in small diameter neurons of peripheral sensory ganglia. The peripheral axons of sensory neurons appear to lack this channel, but its presence has not been investigated in peripheral nerve endings, the site of sensory transduction in vivo. We investigated the effect of TTX on mechanoresponsiveness in nerve endings of sensory neurons that innervate the intracranial dura. Because the degree of TTX resistance of axonal branches could potentially be affected by factors other than channel subtype, the neurons were also tested for sensitivity to lidocaine, which blocks both TTX-sensitive and TTX-resistant sodium channels. Single-unit activity was recorded from dural afferent neurons in the trigeminal ganglion of urethan-anesthetized rats. Response thresholds to mechanical stimulation of the dura were determined with von Frey monofilaments while exposing the dura to progressively increasing concentrations of TTX or lidocaine. Neurons with slowly conducting axons were relatively resistant to TTX. Application of 1 microM TTX produced complete suppression of mechanoresponsiveness in all (11/11) fast A-delta units [conduction velocity (c.v.) 5-18 m/s] but only 50% (5/10) of slow A-delta units (1.5
Diaphragm electromyogram measured with unilateral magnetic stimulation. (6/3268)The purpose of this study was to establish the phrenic nerve conduction time (PNCT) for magnetic stimulation and further assess the relatively new technique of anterior unilateral magnetic stimulation (UMS) of the phrenic nerves in evaluating the diaphragm electromyogram (EMG). An oesophageal electrode was used to record the diaphragm compound muscle action potential (CMAP) elicited by supramaximal percutaneous electrical phrenic nerve stimulation (ES) and UMS from eight normal subjects. The oesophageal electrode used for recording the CMAP was positioned at the level of the hiatus and 3 cm below. The diaphragm CMAP was also recorded from chest wall surface electrodes in five subjects. All of the phrenic nerves could be maximally stimulated with UMS. A clear plateau of the amplitude of the CMAP was achieved for the right and left phrenic nerves. The mean amplitudes of the CMAP recorded from the oesophageal electrode were, for the right side, 0.74+/-0.29 mV (mean+SD) for ES and 0.76+/-0.30 mV for UMS with maximal power output, and for the left side 0.88+/-0.33 mV for ES and 0.80+/-0.24 mV for UMS. PNCT measured by the oesophageal electrode with ES and UMS with maximal output were, for the right side, 7.0+/-0.8 ms and 6.9+/-0.8 ms, respectively, and for the left side 7.8+/-1.2 ms and 7.7+/-1.3 ms, respectively. However, the CMAP recorded from chest wall surface electrodes with UMS was unsuitable for the measurement of PNCT. The results suggest that unilateral magnetic stimulation of the phrenic nerves combined with an oesophageal electrode can be used to assess diaphragmatic electrical activity and measure the phrenic nerve conduction time.

Activity-dependent slowing of conduction differentiates functional subtypes of C fibres innervating human skin. (7/3268)1. The effects of impulse activity on conduction in cutaneous C fibres have been examined in 46 microneurographic recordings from 11 normal subjects and 11 diabetic patients with normal nerve conduction. A tungsten microelectrode was inserted into a cutaneous nerve, usually the superficial peroneal close to the ankle, and intraneural microstimulation was used to identify an area of skin innervated. Three minute trains of 0.25 ms stimuli at 1, 2 and 4 Hz were then delivered to the surface of the skin, separated by intervals of 6 min with stimulation at 0.25 Hz. Slowing and block of conduction were measured from the nerve responses for up to seven C units per stimulation sequence. 2. Three types of C unit were distinguished by their responses to repetitive stimulation: type 1 units slowed progressively during the 3 min trains; slowing of type 2 units reached a plateau within 1 min; while type 3 units hardly slowed at all. Data from normal and diabetic subjects did not differ and were pooled. After 3 min at 2 Hz, the percentage increases in latency were for type 1, 28.3 +/- 9.7 (n = 63 units, mean +/- s.d.); for type 2, 5.2 +/- 1.6 (n = 14); and for type 3, 0.8 +/- 0.5 (n = 5), with no overlap. After 3 min at 4 Hz, 58 % of type 1 units (but no type 2 or 3 units) blocked intermittently. Recovery of latency after stimulation was faster for type 2 than for type 1 units, but conduction velocities of the three types were similar. 3. Type 1 units were identified as nociceptors and 7 type 2 units were identified as 'cold' fibres, activated by non-noxious cold, with no overlap in modality. None of the units tested was activated by weak mechanical stimuli or reflex sympathetic activation. 4. Spike waveforms were averaged for 18 type 1, 10 type 2 and 6 type 3 units. All units had predominantly triphasic action potentials with a major negative peak, but those of type 3 units were on average both smaller and briefer than those of type 1 and type 2 units. 5. It is concluded that repetitive electrical stimulation reliably differentiates nociceptive from cold-specific C fibres innervating human hairy skin, as has previously been shown for the rat. Cold fibres can propagate impulses continuously at much higher rates than nociceptive fibres. The nature of the type 3 units is unclear. (+info)
Thapsigargin inhibits a potassium conductance and stimulates calcium influx in the intact rat lens. (8/3268)1. An increase in lens cell calcium has long been associated with cortical cataract. Recently, it has been shown that thapsigargin induces a rise in lens cell calcium by release from endoplasmic reticulum stores. The effects of this rise on the optical and membrane characteristics of the lens were studied in the isolated rat lens. 2. The electrical characteristics of the isolated, perifused rat lens were measured using a two-internal microelectrode technique that permits measurement of plasma membrane conductance (Gm), membrane potential (Vm) and junctional conductance in the intact lens. 3. Thapsigargin (1 microM) induced a rapid overall depolarization of Vm that was accompanied by first a decrease and then an increase in Gm. 4. Replacing external Na+ with tetraethylammonium (TEA) abolished the decrease in Gm. However, a transient increase phase was still observed. 5. The changes in conductance were further characterized by measuring 22Na+ and 45Ca2+ influxes into the isolated lens. Thapsigargin (1 microM) induced a transient increase in 45Ca2+, but did not affect Na+ influx. 6. The Ca2+ channel blocker La3+ (10 microM) totally inhibited the thapsigargin-induced Ca2+ influx. It also blocked the increase in Gm observed in control and in Na+-free-TEA medium. In the absence of external calcium, thapsigargin induced a small depolarization in Vm. 7. These data indicate that thapsigargin induces both a decrease in K+ conductance and an increase in Ca2+ conductance. These probably result from release of stored Ca2+ and subsequent activation of store-operated Ca2+ channels (capacitative Ca2+ entry). 8. Thapsigargin application over the time course of these experiments (24 h) had no effect on junctional conductance or on the transparency of the lens. (+info)
Compound Motor Action Potential Interexaminer Variability in Photoguided Placement of the Recording Electrodes
Interpretation of neurographic data in follow-up studies of patients with neuromuscular disease is sometimes challenging because of the expected variability in repeated tests. In this study, we explored whether the interexaminer variability of the compound motor action potential (CMAP) amplitude is reduced if the examiner is guided by the previously taken photographs of the position of the recording electrodes. The CMAPs were recorded from 20 subjects by unilateral distal stimulation of the median, ulnar, peroneal, and tibial nerve by 4 different technicians. All the subjects were examined on 2 occasions (similar to 1 week apart). On the first occasion, the technicians recorded the CMAP values according to routine protocols. On the second occasion, the technicians had additional guidance from photographs displaying the recording electrode positions from the first study. The CMAP coefficient of variation (CoV) was calculated for each nerve examined by the four technicians. Differences in CoV ...

Compound muscle action potential - Wikipedia
The compound muscle action potential (CMAP) or compound motor action potential is an electromyography investigation (electrical study of muscle function). The CMAP idealizes the summation of a group of almost simultaneous action potentials from several muscle fibers in the same area. These are usually evoked by stimulation of the motor nerve. Patients that suffer from critical illness myopathy, which is a frequent cause of weakness seen in patients in hospital intensive care units, have prolonged compound muscle action potential.. ...

Diabetic Neuropathy in Children
Nerve conduction studies and renal function were evaluated prospectively in 144 diabetic children followed from the time of diagnosis and at 2, 5 and 10 years in the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology, Huddinge University Hospital, Sweden. At diagnosis and before complete remission of the diabetes, abnormal values were found in 25% of patients for motor conduction velocity and sensory nerve action potentials (SNAP) in the median nerve, for sensory conduction velocity and SNAP in the sural nerve, for parasympathetic autonomic function assessed by R-R intervals in the ECG, and for renal function evaluated by glomerular filtration rate. During long-term follow-up, an initial improved sensory nerve conduction was followed after 2 years by deteriorations in sensory and motor nerve conduction and autonomic nerve function. Poor glycemic control correlated with abnormal prolonged nerve conduction. Improved glycemic control by intense insulin treatment reduced the risk of diabetic neuropathy. ...

Inflammatory radiculoneuropathy in an ALS4 patient with a novel SETX mutation | Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry
Slight delays in early development resulted in the patient beginning to walk at 1.5 years. He was prone to falls and had suffered from pes cavus since childhood. At 35 years of age, the patient presented with difficulty walking. One year later he found it difficult to fully extend his fingers and this was exacerbated over the following 3 months. Nerve conduction studies revealed asymmetric demyelinating patterns (median nerve motor conduction velocity: right 29 m/s, left 53 m/s). Subsequently, the patient developed a neurogenic bladder. Intravenous immunoglobulin therapy (20 g/day for 5 days) resulted in mild improvement in muscle weakness (one point on the manual muscle test) and in the amplitude of compound motor action potentials for the median (right 1.982 mV to 3.362 mV, left 1.342 mV to 2.062 mV) and right ulnar nerve (6.064 mV to 8.296 mV). At 37 years of age, the patient developed progressive distal weakness and sensory disturbances in the right forearm and medial thigh. Following two ...

Nerve conduction velocity, or NCV is a test administered to record the speed of electrical signals through the nerve. In a NCV test, electrodes are attached onto a patients skin at nerve sites that are stimulated by electrical impulses emitted from the electrodes. NCV results are related to the diameter of the nerve and the degree of myelination of the nerve. Abnormal results indicate nerve damage or destruction including, axonopathy, conduction block, and demyelination ...

The aims of this study were to assess whether high-dose treatment with an endothelin 1 (ET1) ETA antagonist could correct deficits in peripheral nerve conduction and blood flow in streptozotocin-diabetic rats and to examine interactions between ET1 and the renin-angiotensin system using low-dose single and combined treatments with ETA and AT1 antagonists. After B wk of diabetes, sciatic motor nerve conduction velocity (NCV) was approximately 20% reduced. High-dose ETA antagonist treatment for 2 wk corrected NCV to the extent of 84%. A approximately 48% diabetic deficit in nutritive endoneurial blood flow was also 88% corrected by the ETA antagonist. Combined treatment with low-doses of ETA and AT1 antagonists, selected to give approximately 20% amelioration of diabetic NCV deficits on their own, resulted in 66% correction. This was greater than expected for a simple additive effect between the antagonists, demonstrating a synergistic interaction. From NCV dose-response curves, the combined ...
2018 Group Project 5 - Embryology
Sjögren Syndrome (SS) is commonly associated with a degeneration in the dorsal root ganglion, and presents itself by a prickling/burning sensation in the extremities (paresthesia), lack of body coordination (ataxia), reflexes that are either poor or lack thereof, and inability to keep themselves in balance (Rombert sign). There is usually no loss in muscle strength. Autonomic dysfunction may also be found. Electrophysiological studies reveal a widespread reduction of sensory potential amplitudes, without a distal worsening gradient toward the legs. Asymmetric responses may be observed. Most of the time, motor nerve conduction studies and distal motor amplitudes are normal. Somatosensory evoked potentials may reveal abnormal central conduction times, which are probably due to the degeneration of dorsal root columns in the spinal cord. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been used as a sensitive technique especially in those patients with long disease duration, showing a hyperintense T2-weighted ...

Single-fiber conduction velocity test allows earlier detection of abnormalities in diabetes
Introduction: The purpose of this study was to determine whether single-fiber conduction velocity (SF-CV) of a small number of axons increases sensitivity for identification of motor nerve conduction alterations in patients with diabetes. Methods: Twenty-one consecutive diabetic patients in good metabolic control were studied. For each patient, conventional (C-CV) and SF-CV results were correlated with the presence of neuropathic symptoms. Results: Nine of 21 patients reported symptoms suggestive of mild nerve impairment. Three patients had abnormal sural nerve CV, 1 of whom also had abnormal motor nerve conduction. Eighteen patients had normal findings on conventional tests, 3 of whom had slowing of SF-CV. Conclusions: SF-CV is able to detect mild myelin damage with higher sensitivity than conventional tests. The use of SF-CV may be a helpful tool in the early identification of diabetic polyneuropathy, and it may be useful for tailoring an approach to diabetic polyneuropathy.. ...

ELECTROPHYSIOLOGICAL SIGNS OF STRUCTURAL CHANGES IN MOTOR UNITS AFTER ISCHAEMIC STROKE] | eLitMed
[Introduction - While it is several decades ago that electrophysiological studies in the early stages after an ischaemic stroke revealed spontaneous activity in the affected muscles, today few data are available on the peripheral changes in later stages after a cerebrovascular event. The aim of this study was to detect electrophysiological signs that could indicate changes at the motor unit level occurring within a longer post-stroke period. Patients and methods - Forty-four patients who had developed hemiparesis after an ischaemic stroke in the area of the middle cerebral artery were involved in the study. Motor and sensory nerve conduction studies and electromyography were carried out on each side on six nerves and in five muscles respectively. Values between the affected and unaffected side were compared by statistical methods. Results - In patients with hemiparesis present for less then nine months, low M wave amplitudes, fibrillation potentials and an increased number of complex motor unit
Pain and aches in your bones and joints can range from mild discomfort that goes away by itself to severe aches that require medication. We examined the patient 5 months after beginning of pain and rash when 34 sessions of physiotherapy were performed to recover motor activities. Sometimes, Im sorry to say, shes in pain anyway, but its not as bad if she takes her meds, and since its not a pain med she feels better about taking it long term. Sensory nerve conduction study and electromyography revealed low amplitude action potentials in left superior radial and median (from thumb and index) SNAPs (sensory neuron action potentials) and nascent MUAPs (motor unit action potentials) in left deltoid muscle [Table 1] and [Table 2]; also, a low amplitude action potential in left radial nerve was seen. No evidence of metastatic brachial plexus was noted [Figure 1]. Histopathological examination of the left breast specimen showed involvement of the superficial dermal lymphatics by anaplastic cells with ...

Dr Thomas Sears recalls his 1958 paper and discusses the clinical, physiological and technical background from the perspective of a basic scientist Graduating in 1952, I could hardly have known that 60 years on I would be writing about this 1958 paper!1 Had he lived, Roger Gilliatt would have provided a secure clinical perspective. Of necessity, my commentary reflects on the clinical, physiological and technical background from the perspective of a basic scientist. Initially my post at Queen Square was physiologist in the EEG department under Dr Bill Cobb, a distinguished electroencephalographer and electromyographer. In Stockholm, Bill had collaborated with Eric Kugelberg studying the post-ischaemic repetitive firing of motor nerve fibres after a pressure cuff is released.2 Their use of two cuffs with pressure first released in the proximal one proved, (a) that the repetitive discharges arose in axons at the local site of compression induced ischaemia; (b) that conduction velocity slows ...
We showed in one of the largest sets of patients with type 1 diabetes to date that, in addition to duration of diabetes and level of A1C, the presence of other microvascular diabetes complications is associated with low NCV and NCA. We did not find associations with blood pressure, lipid levels, BMI, waist-to-hip ratio, smoking, or alcohol consumption.. The EURODIAB PCS offers the possibility to study complications of type 1 diabetes, because it provides a large, multicenter, European cohort of patients attending a clinic at least once a year. In addition, all participating centers used similar standardized methods to obtain all measures. Therefore, compared with other studies, our study on nerve conduction has the strength of containing extensive information on these measures for 634 patients with type 1 diabetes, and we have the ability to take this information into account in our analyses.. Unfortunately, many patients had missing values on nerve conduction. Complete-case analysis could ...
Pulse pressure is independently associated with sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes | Archivio...
Objectives. The mechanisms responsible for the onset and progression of sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy (SMPN) in type 2 diabetes remain largely unknown. Although a link between hypertension and SMPN has been observed, it is not clear which blood pressure (BP) component (i.e. systolic, SBP; diastolic, DBP; or pulse pressure, PP) is primarily involved. We sought to determine the relationship between BP components and parameters of nerve function in type 2 diabetes. Design. Cross-sectional study. Setting. Academic medical centre. Subjects. A total of 55 consecutive ambulatory patients with type 2 diabetes (age 62.6 ± 8.0 years, mean ± SD). Interventions. Measurement of clinic BP and 10 neurophysiological parameters: motor nerve conduction velocity (NCV; median, ulnar, posterior tibial and peroneal nerve), sensory amplitude (AMP) and latency (LAT; median, ulnar and sural nerve). Results. Univariate analysis showed that age. diabetes duration, SBP and PP were negatively correlated with nerve ...
The study recruited 67 individuals with type 1 diabetes during routine appointments at the Norwegian Diabetic Centre. Inclusion criteria were 1) age 18 to 60 years (inclusive), 2) type 1 diabetes (,15-year duration), and 3) normo- or microalbuminuria. All patients provided written informed consent. The study, which was approved by the regional ethics committee and the Norwegian Medicines Agency, was conducted as a parallel, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled prospective trial of 24-month duration. Patients in the active group were given 300 mg benfotiamine per day (Benfogamma, Wörwag Pharma GmbH).. We selected patients with type 1 diabetes of ,15-year duration (mean 31-year duration) because we previously showed that these patients have reduced nerve conduction velocity (NCV) even if they do not have marked clinical neuropathy (6). Nerve conduction studies (NCS) were performed with Keypoint machines (Medtronic, Denmark) using surface electrodes with ,45-min acclimatization (room ...
Dr Sanchez | EMG/NCV
After all of the electrodes have been inserted, you may be asked to contract the muscle, for example, by lifting or bending your leg. Theaction potential (size and shape of the wave) that this creates on the oscilloscope provides information about the ability of the muscle to respond when the nerves are stimulated. As the muscle is contracted more forcefully, more and more muscle fibers are activated, producing action potentials.. A related procedure that may be performed is nerve conduction velocity (NCV). NCV is a measurement of the speed of conduction of an electrical impulse through a nerve. NCV can determine nerve damage and destruction, and is often performed at the same time as EMG. Both procedures help to detect the presence, location, and extent of diseases that damage the nerves and muscles.. ...

The Human body has a set biology and composition. Just like a finger can feel a poke when getting pinched by a needle, it can also feel the same (without a needle) when its affected by neuropathy. The point is there are many things that can cause injury. Further, it is irrational to think that MND has exclusive access to a specific area other diseases do not have access to. Not to mention, in MND nerve conduction studies are normal (with 99% occurrence ...
Gene Therapy for Repair of Cardiac Fibrosis | Circulation
Interstitial fibrosis reduces the electrical coupling between cardiac myocytes because fibroblasts produce smaller or larger collagenous septa, which electrically insulate cardiac cells or muscle bundles. As a result, the normal myocardial architecture becomes disrupted and is transformed into a pathological substrate characterized by the presence of multiple insulating barriers, which force the depolarization wave to spread nonuniformly. As predicted by computer simulations and demonstrated in cell cultures, in such a medium, long local conduction delays occur that may slow the effective conduction velocity to very low values. Unlike a decrease of the rapid sodium current, which will result in conduction failure when conduction velocity is depressed to approximately 30% of control, slow conduction because of poor electrical coupling, although discontinuous, continues to proceed at very low effective conduction velocities.6-8 This is explained by the fact that, intrinsic to poor electrical ...
ELECTROMYOGRAPHY (EMG) | OSNI
Before the test, the doctor will talk to the patient about his or her medical problem and perform a brief examination. Then there are two parts to the test.. The Nerve Conduction Studies test the electricity that muscles and nerves create naturally. The doctor will tape wires to the skin and give a series of electrical stimulation. The machine times how fast nerves carry signals to arm or leg muscles. (In many nerves the signal travels about 120 miles per hour!) Although the suddenness of the stimulation may surprise some, most people are fairly comfortable with nerve conduction studies.. Electromyography, the second part of the test, allows the consultant to see if the nerve that goes from the spinal cord to individual muscles is damaged. The doctor puts a thin sterile pin into selected muscles, listens and watches a TV screen for signals from the muscle. Patients are able to hear sounds from the machine when they barely move a muscle. For much of the test, its necessary to relax the muscle. ...
Although bortezomib (BTZ) is the frontline treatment for multiple Rabbit - Aurora Kinases as Druggable Targets in Cancer Therapy

(100 mg/kg by gavage every day for 3 weeks). Chronic administration of BTZ reduced nerve conduction velocity and induced allodynia. CR4056 Bupre or Gaba did not impact the impaired nerve conduction velocity. Conversely CR4056 dose-dependently reversed BTZ-induced allodynia (minimum effective dose 0.6 mg/kg). The optimal dose found 6 mg/kg offered a constant pain relief throughout the treatment period and without rebound after suspension becoming effective when coadministered with BTZ starting before or after allodynia was founded or when given only after BTZ cessation.

Patente US3785368 - Abnormal nerve pressure locus detector and method - Google Patentes
A system, device and method for readily detecting the locus of a subluxated or pinched nerve along the spinal column and particularly for identifying which particular pair of vertebrae are pressing upon a pinched nerve has been disclosed so that a medical person can relieve the pressure as by adjusting alignment of one of the pair of vertebrae. A T-shaped scanning probe is employed to explore along the regions directly over and also flanking the spinal column while another probe is held tightly in the patients hand whereby a low voltage circuit can be provided which develops fluctuations in a meter reading the current or voltage through the circuit as the T-shaped probe is drawn along the back of the patient. A method for detecting nerve root pressure subluxations of the body of a patient in the regions of the spinal column in a manner which identifies the locus of the subluxation comprises a number of manipulative steps characterized by drawing the cross-piece of the probe along the back of the
