Clinical Neurophysiology is a medical specialty which encompasses the functional diagnosis and treatment of any disorders of the central or peripheral nervous system and of primary muscular diseases, as well as the management of different sleep disorders. The following is a list of the specific techniques used for diagnosis of diseases of the nervous system carried out by our unit:
Video-Electroencephalogram: explores the central nervous system in conditions such as epilepsy in adults, children or newborns.
Electromyogram and Electroneurogram: aimed at exploring injuries to the peripheral nervous system such as carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel syndrome, acute or chronic polyneuropathies, rediculopathy, plexopathy; and muscular diseases such as myopathy.
Visual evoked potentials: injuries of the optic nerve and the rest of the visual pathways.
Auditory evoked potentials: diagnosis of loss of hearing and other auditory alterations from newborns to adults.
Somatosensory evoked potentials: alterations in the central and peripheral nervous system.
Single fibre/Jitter and repetitive stimulation: Alterations of the neuromuscular junction (Myasthenia gravis amongst others).
In the field of sleep disorders, we carry out clinical diagnoses and treatments in a specific treatment room, as well as the necessary diagnostic tests for proper management of the different disorders.
