  • PurposeThe ability to diagnose patients with critical illness polyneuromyopathy (CIPNM) is hampered by impaired patient sensorium, technical limitations, and the time-intensive nature of performing electrophysiological testing. Therefore, we sought to determine whether single nerve conduction studies (NCS) could accurately screen for CIPNM.MethodsCritically ill patients at increased risk for developing CIPNM were identified. Bilateral NCS of six nerves, and concentric needle electromyography… CONTINUE READING
