Repetitive CMAPs: mechanisms of neural and synaptic genesis.


Repetitive compound muscle action potentials (R-CMAPs) occur when a single nerve shock excites muscle fibers repeatedly. "Double discharges" are due to intramuscular nerve reexcitation. "Synaptic" R-CMAPs, due to excess acetylcholine in the neuromuscular synapse, can occur in congenital myasthenia, the slow-channel syndrome, and acetylcholinesterase… (More)
