In the analysis of the upper extremity sensory nerves, the median nerve recording was antidromically made at the finger-wrist segment by putting the ring electrodes on the third finger and the ulnar nerve recording was made by putting the ring electrodes on the fifth finger In the analysis of the upper extremity motor nerves, the median nerve recording was made by recording the stimulus at the abductor pollicis brevis sent from the wrist and cubital area and the ulnar nerve recording was made by recording the stimulus at the abductor digit minimi muscle given from the wrist, elbow and upper elbow.
