Nerve conduction velocity and magnitude of action potential in motor peripheral nerves of upper and lower limbs in normal subjects

Husan Bano, Sumera Gul, Umer Kazi.

Abstract
Objective: To investigate the nerve conduction velocity and magnitude of action potential in motor peripheral nerves of upper and lower limbs in normal subjects.
Methodology: For this experimental observational study, the motor nerve conduction data were collected from 43 normal healthy volunteers (23 males and 20 females) who had no history of any symptoms related to neuro-muscular or peripheral nervous system disorders. They were divided according to age groups as 20-30 years, 31-40 years, 41-50 years and 50-60 years.
Results: The nerve conduction velocity and the amplitude of action potential were found to be lower in the age group of 50-60 years.
Conclusion: Our designated normative reference values of the motor peripheral nerves can be helpful in diagnosing various neuromuscular disorders.

Key words: Conduction velocity, action potential, peripheral motor nerve.
