Criteria for conduction block based on computer simulation studies of nerve conduction with human data obtained in the forearm segment of the median nerve.


The finding of conduction block (CB) on nerve conduction studies supports the diagnosis of potentially treatable immune-mediated neuropathies. CB in a number of axons may result in reduction of the compound muscle action potential (CMAP) on proximal versus distal stimulation (decrement). Decrement may also result from increased temporal dispersion (TD) as… (More)
