Summary of "Influence of reference electrode position on the compound muscle action potential."

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.

Motor unit number of the first dorsal interosseous muscle estimated from CMAP scan with different pulse widths and steps.

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...

Head orientation and electrode placement potentially influence fetal scalp ECG waveform.

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...

Stable Full Inkjet-Printed Solid-State Ag/AgCl Reference Electrode.

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....

Action's influence on spatial perception: resolution and a mystery.

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. ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
