Nerve excitability changes in chronic renal failure indicate membrane depolarization due to hyperkalaemia.


Multiple nerve excitability measurements were used to investigate axonal membrane properties in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). Nine patients were studied during routine haemodialysis therapy. The median nerve was stimulated at the wrist and compound muscle action potentials recorded from abductor pollicis brevis. Stimulus-response behaviour… (More)
