A Study on Accuracy Improvement of Repeated Measure Uroflowmetry- Electromyography

Uroflowmetry(UF) has been the standard first-line diagnostic tool for the evaluation of pediatric voiding dysfunction. But recently, UF combined with pelvic flow electromyography(EMG) is emphasized and recommended to analyze the separate contributions of the detrusor and bladder outlet and sole UF is discouraged except for the follow-up study after abnormal UF/EMG result(Bauer et al., 2015). However, electrode itself can disturb pelvic floor relaxation and there is no evidence ...

Electromyography to Diagnose Neuromuscular Disorders

This study will investigate problems with muscle weakness and control using electromyography-a test of nerve-muscle cell communication. Advanced techniques called single fiber electromyography and macro-electromyography, which evaluate individual muscle fibers, will be used. Besides aiding in diagnosis, these tests provide information about disease progression that may be useful in guiding therapy. Adult patients with suspected neurological disorders of muscle control and we...

Uroflow Measurement With Electromyography (EMG) to Identify Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS): Conducted on Healthy Children

Nowadays there is a growing interest towards non-invasive assessment of urinary dysfunctions in clinical practice. The tendency to use uroflowmetry as a first-line screening tool is based on the inexpensiveness, time efficiency, comfort of the patient, etc. However, it is stated that uroflowmetry as a stand-alone study lacks the potential to make an accurate diagnosis. In regard to this, the International Continence Society indicated that the addition of pelvic floor electromyo...

Electromyographic Analysis of the Masticatory Muscles in Cleft Lip and Palate Children With Temporomandibular Disorders

Another objective was to determine the diagnostic value of electromyography in identifying CLP patients with temporomandibular disorders. The sample comprised 87 children with CLP and mixed dentition. The children ...

Does Auricular Acupuncture Improve Tolerance to Electromyography (EMG) Testing?

Needle Electromyography (EMG) is an important test used to assess muscle and nerve function, but the test can be uncomfortable. It is currently not standard practice to provide any pain-relieving intervention for this procedure. The purpose of this research study is to determine whether auricular (ear) acupuncture will make EMG testing less painful.

Age-related Changes of Shoulder Muscles

A cross-sectional descriptive study, in which the surface electromyographic activity of five shoulder muscles was compared in three populations: older adults, middle-aged adults and young adults. The evaluation of the electromyographic data offers a suitable foundation to understand aging process. This supports that surface electromyography provide information about the aged shoulder muscles. Loss of functionality is suffered by a high percentage of older adults, which g...

Intraoperative Optimisation of Tissue Oxygenation

Monitoring and optimizing tissue oxygenation (StO2) in high-risk surgery and/or high-risk surgical patients may decrease the risk of postoperative complications. Tissue hypoxia occurs frequently during high-risk surgery in high-risk patients.
