conduction velocity


Also found in: Acronyms.

conduction velocity

the speed with which an electrical impulse can be transmitted through excitable tissue, as in the movement of an action potential through His-Purkinje fibers of the heart.

85 [micro]g/mL, respectively), and 3 mg/mL of thymol, but not EOLs, significantly decreased first component conduction velocity.
6 Our patients's SNAP, CMAP amplitude, and SCV values of median, ulnar and medial antebrachial nerves, and motor conduction velocity (MCV) of the median nerve were normal, but CMAP amplitudes of the left ulnar nerve were lower than the right side and there was an abnormal focal slowing of the ulnar MCV across the elbow, which may be considered as ulnar neuropathy.
2] There is delay in nerve conduction velocity in all MB cases compared to PB cases.
Recently, several studies examining the changes in conduction velocity during an incremental cycling test have found that conduction velocity increases with increasing workload up to a maximum value, which coincides with the occurrence of the ventilatory threshold (T-vent), and, subsequently, declines slightly in the transition between T-vent and V'[O.
Electrodiagnostic findings early in the disease reveal demyelinating features such as slowing of conduction velocity and prolongation of latencies but as the disease progresses secondary axonal damage commonly ensues.
Electrophysiological diagnosis of UNEE was performed according to the following criteria: (i) an across-elbow ulnar conduction velocity <50 [ms.
It's a raw number, that doesn't take into account the cost of drugs we have to purchase ($1,050 for a single bottle of Botox), the equipment we need to buy ($16,000 for a basic electromyo-gram/nerve conduction velocity machine), rent ($2,700 per month for me), malpractice insurance, staff salaries, billing services, office supplies, licensing fees.
All patients were subjected to X-ray cervical spine AP and lateral view, Color Doppler study of subclavian vessels and nerve conduction velocity of upper limbs.
In the animal model, oxidative and nitrosative stress is associated with an impairment of sensory nerve conduction velocity, a reduction in intraepidermal nerve fiber density, and an endpoint common in animal models called thermal or mechanical hyperalgesia.
In addition, fibers of different diameters and degree of myelination determine the nerve conduction velocity (NCV).
Latency, amplitude, conduction velocity, F-wave and its quantity was assessed [4-6, 10-15].
