Clinical uses for EcST include:
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to find problems related to electrical activity of the brain. An EEG tracks and records brain wave patterns. Small metal discs with thin wires (electrodes) are placed on the scalp, and then send signals to a computer to record the results.
A nerve conduction velocity test (NCV) is an electrical test that is used to determine the adequacy of the conduction of the nerve impulse as it courses down a nerve. This test is used to detect signs of nerve injury.
Electromyography (EMG) measures muscle response or electrical activity in response to a nerve's stimulation of the muscle. The test is used to help detect neuromuscular abnormalities. During the test, one or more small needles (also called electrodes) are inserted through the skin into the muscle.
Neuropsychological testing is a computerized test specifically designed to measure a psychological function. Using a variety of tests which map patient capabilities and results across seven cognitive areas:
Galvanic Skin Response Testing
Galvanic Skin Response Testing combines the use of the sympathetic skin response (SSR, sweat absorption) via electrodes, as well as oxygen saturation measurements (O2 Sat), and the rapid measurement of the ankle-brachial blood pressure index (ABI) to assess the health of the autonomic nervous system, and the peripheral nervous system, while aiding in the diagnoses of cardiac and neurological conditions.
