When the compound muscle action potential (CMAP) is recorded in motor nerve conduction studies, the reference (E2) electrode can make a significant contribution to the CMAP. This study investigates the E2 recorded signal and its effect on CMAP measurements when E2 electrode is placed at different sites.

Compound muscle action potential (CMAP) scan has different settings such as stimulus frequency, duration (or pulse width), and the number of stimuli (or steps). This study aims to evaluate the influen...
Fetal monitoring based on electrocardiographic (ECG) morphology is obtained from a single unipolar fetal scalp electrode. Ideally, it should be obtained from multiple leads, as ECG waveform depends on...
With a growing demand for the availability of inexpensive, simple and rapid prototyped devices, the prospect of miniaturization of the reference electrodes using printing techniques becomes promising....
Despite the impression that perception of spatial layout including distance, slant, and size is objective and geometrically accurate, spatial perception is influenced by a perceiver's ability to act. ...
This study presents a modelling framework in which information on muscle fiber direction and orientation during contraction is derived from diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and incorporated in a computa...
After cochlear implantation, cochlear nerve is stimulated by giving a current over the electrodes placed in the cochlea and the current is measured by electrically evoked Compound Action P...
Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disorder, and the incidence is rapidly increasing. Cardioversion using an electrical shock (DC-cardioversion) is an important treatment ...
The aim of this study is to identify the one electrode position out of two most commonly used for external electrical cardioversion of typical atrial flutter, which needs less delivered en...
Electrical velocimetry (EV) is one of the latest adaptions of impedance cardiography showing diverging results. With electrode position being a suspected factor influencing measurement acc...
The purpose of this study is to observe inflammatory markers like TNF (tumor necrosis factor), IL-1 (interleukin-1), IL-6 (interleukin-6),TREM-1 (triggering receptor expressed on myeloid c...
Solution titration in which the end point is read from the electrode-potential variations with the concentrations of potential determining ions. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
A process fundamental to muscle physiology whereby an electrical stimulus or action potential triggers a myocyte to depolarize and contract. This mechanical muscle contraction response is regulated by entry of calcium ions into the cell.
The shortest duration of an electrical stimulus where the threshold amplitude is twice the rheobase - the minimum required for eliciting an ACTION POTENTIAL at any time period. It is a measure of the excitability of nerve or muscle tissue, and is characteristic of types and/or condition of the nerve or muscle cells in the tissue.
A heterocyclic compound consisting of a furan where the hydrogen at position 2 is substituted by a formyl group.
An electrochemical technique for measuring the current that flows in solution as a function of an applied voltage. The observed polarographic wave, resulting from the electrochemical response, depends on the way voltage is applied (linear sweep or differential pulse) and the type of electrode used. Usually a mercury drop electrode is used.
