BrainWaves: A Neurology Podcast

Dec 21, 2017

Nerve conduction testing should not be as puzzling as it's made out to be. This week, we break it down into individual components and use two case examples to explain how you might interpret this commonly implemented electrodiagnostic assessment.

Produced by James E. Siegler. Music by Coldnoise, Jessie Spillane, Loyalty Freak Music, and Yshwa. Voiceover by Erika Mejia. BrainWaves' podcasts and online content are intended for medical education only and should not be used for routine clinical decision making.
