Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 09 May 2022

Electromyography and nerve conduction studies are tests that measure the electrical task of muscular tissues and nerves. An EMG test takes a look at the electrical signals your muscles make when they are at remainder and when they are being used. A nerve conduction research measures how quick and just how well the body's electric signals travel down your nerves. EMG tests and nerve conduction studies can both aid figure out if you have a disorder of your muscle mass, nerves, or both. Other names: electrodiagnostic research study, EMG test, electromyogram, NCS, nerve conduction speed, NCV EMG and nerve conduction studies are used to assist identify a range of muscle mass and nerve disorders. If muscle mass are reacting the right way to nerve signals, an EMG test aids discover out. Nerve conduction studies assist detect nerve damage or disease. When EMG tests and nerve conduction studies are done together, it aids providers inform if your symptoms are triggered by a muscular tissue disorder or a nerve trouble. Your provider will clean up the skin over the muscular tissue being tested. A needle electrode is a special cable that a mild electrical existing circulations with. When the electrode is placed, you might have slight pain or pain. The machine will record the muscular tissue activity while your muscular tissue goes to rest. You might listen to standing out sounds when you contract your muscle. Your provider will record the time it considers your muscle to reply to the nerve signal. If you are having both tests, the nerve conduction research study will be done. Inform your health and wellness treatment provider if you have a pacemaker or cardiac defibrillator.
