Nerve conduction studies play an important role in clinical practice and research. Given their widespread use, reliability of tests merits careful attention. We assessed interexaminer and intraexaminer reliability of median and ulnar sensory nerve measures of amplitude, onset latency, and peak latency. In a two-phase cross-sectional study, two examiners tested 158 workers. Reliability was assessed with intraclass correlations (ICC) and kappa statistics. Median nerve measures were more reliable… CONTINUE READING
