This application note will measure nerve conduction velocity along the ulnar nerve of a human subject. This is a standard site for nerve conduction velocity measurement due to the relatively large size of the nerve and easy access of the forearm. Other nerves may be used, however.
Note: Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) measures should use a wired setup.
Wireless BioNomadix have a variable timing jitter of ±0.5 ms rms, due to digital data buffering and wireless transmission, and are not recommended for NCV applications or any other physiological measurement where equivalently small timing differences are being measured; instead, BIOPAC recommends our wide range of wired amplifiers, such as EMG100C.
The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL500 series disposable electrodes and LEAD131 for a four-spot […]
NIRS and CNAP—Pairing great tools for great data Cerebral hemoglobin concentration (blood mass in the brain) is frequently measured in the prefrontal cortex, and systemic arterial blood pressure is known to be a variable factor based on the hemoglobin concentration. A leg pressure cuff was used to constrict and release blood flow to create a […]
BIOPAC’s just released Introductory ECG Guide addresses fundamental to advanced concerns to optimize electrocardiography data recording and analysis. Topics include: ECG Complex; Electrical and Mechanical Sequence of a Heartbeat; Systole and Diastole; Configurations for Lead I, Lead II, Lead III, 6-lead ECG, 12-lead ECG, precordial leads; Ventricular Late Potentials (VLPs); ECG Measurement Tools; Automated Analysis Routines […]
