AbstractAn apparatus for use in nerve conduction studies includes a fixture for supporting a reference electrode, a recording electrode, a cathode and an anode with the distance between the cathode and the recording electrode being preselected and fixed. The electrodes of the fixture are electrically connected to a nerve stimulator and a controller. A panel and display are connected to the controller along with a storage device and a keyboard input device. A ground pad including a ground electrode and a temperature sensor are connected to the controller. The controller causes an electrical pulse to be transmitted to the cathode. The distal latency and amplitude of the supramaximal stimulus response of the nerve being tested are determined and displayed.
