This randomized double-blinded control trial aims to compare the pain levels experienced by the women using the standard conscious sedation and those who had transcutaneous electrical nerv...
Acute Effects of Acu-Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (Acu-TENS) on Forced Expiratory Flow Volume in One Second (FEV1) and Blood β-Endorphin Level in Subjects With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
The objective of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of Acu-TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation applied on acupoints) on lung functions, dyspnoeic symptoms and its...
Early pulmonary rehabilitation is recommended after an episode of severe exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, its implementation is challenging particular...
High-frequency, high-intensity transcutaneous electrical nerve-stimulation (TENS) is an inexpensive and non-invasive pain control approach. TENS, pulsating electrical currents that activat...
The purpose of the study is to compare patient centered- outcomes between Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) at three locations to treat urinary urge incontinence. One of t...
To evaluate the impact of a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) program for hemodialysis on patients' dry mouth and salivary flow rates.
To assess the effectiveness of vaginal diazepam in addition to transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) in the treatment of vestibulodynia (VBD).
To compare the efficacy of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) and transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TENS) on hemiplegic shoulder pain (HSP).
Electrical stimulation and acupuncture points as non-pharmacological methods, have been the focus of pain reduction in different patients. This study is aimed at determining the effects of transcutane...
Individuals receiving radiation for head and neck cancer (HNC) often develop painful oral mucositis that impairs function, possibly leading to feeding tubes, hospitalization, and treatment delays. Alt...
The use of specifically placed small electrodes to deliver electrical impulses across the SKIN to relieve PAIN. It is used less frequently to produce ANESTHESIA.
The electrical response evoked in a muscle or motor nerve by electrical or magnetic stimulation. Common methods of stimulation are by transcranial electrical and TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION. It is often used for monitoring during neurosurgery.
An adjunctive treatment for PARTIAL EPILEPSY and refractory DEPRESSION that delivers electrical impulses to the brain via the VAGUS NERVE. A battery implanted under the skin supplies the energy.
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 form of acupuncture with electrical impulses passing through the needles to stimulate NERVE TISSUE. It can be used for ANALGESIA; ANESTHESIA; REHABILITATION; and treatment for diseases.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
