Point-of-care nerve conduction devices (POCD) have been studied in younger patients and may facilitate screening for polyneuropathy in non-specialized clinical settings. However, performance may be impaired with advanced age owing to age-related changes in nerve conduction. We aimed to evaluate the validity of a POCD as a proxy for standard nerve conduction studies (NCS) in older adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D).

Diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN) is one of the most frequent diabetic complications, and impairs patients' quality of life. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of ranirestat (40 mg/day) in patients with...
We describe a new nerve conduction study technique with reference values for the three branches of the supraclavicular nerve (SCN) in young healthy subjects and application of it in two patients.
The thalassemias are the most common single gene disorder in the world. Nowadays, the average life expectancy of patients in developed countries has increased significantly, while, there was an increa...
Various animal models have historically been used to study iatrogenic nerve injury during performance of conduction nerve blocks. Our aims were to compare the microstructures of nerves in commonly use...
Distal sensory onset latency (DSOL), conduction velocity (SCV) and nerve action potential (SNAP) amplitudes are used in electrodiagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) beside motor conduction data. T...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of 40 mg and 80 mg ranirestat on peroneal motor nerve conduction velocity relative to placebo in subjects with mild to moderate diabeti...
Investigate the validity of Hemosense System in pediatric patients on anticoagulation therapy.
Brachial plexus block is a common regional anesthesia technique which is performed by anesthesiologists to anesthetize the arm for surgery. In this study, we are investigating the relation...
Intensive Care Unit Acquired Weakness(ICUAW) encompasses a spectrum of disorders characterized by generalized weakness developing after the onset of critical illness. Pediatric data on the...
We intend to study children and adolescents from 8 to 18 years suffering from diabetes mellitus type 1 for more than one year. The patients will undergo a detailed clinical examination for...
Machine readable patient or equipment identification device using radio frequency from 125 kHz to 5.8 Ghz.
Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.
Allows patient diagnoses in the physician’s office, in other ambulatory setting or at bedside. The results of care are timely, and allow rapid treatment to the patient. (from NIH Fact Sheet Point-of-Care Diagnostic Testing, 2010.)
Mechanical compression of nerves or nerve roots from internal or external causes. These may result in a conduction block to nerve impulses (due to MYELIN SHEATH dysfunction) or axonal loss. The nerve and nerve sheath injuries may be caused by ISCHEMIA; INFLAMMATION; or a direct mechanical effect.
A class of nerve fibers as defined by their structure, specifically the nerve sheath arrangement. The AXONS of the myelinated nerve fibers are completely encased in a MYELIN SHEATH. They are fibers of relatively large and varied diameters. Their NEURAL CONDUCTION rates are faster than those of the unmyelinated nerve fibers (NERVE FIBERS, UNMYELINATED). Myelinated nerve fibers are present in somatic and autonomic nerves.
