EMG / NERVE CONDUCTION:

An EMG test looks at the electrical signals your muscles make when they are at rest and when they are being used. A nerve conduction study measures how fast and how well the body’s electrical signals travel down your nerves.

PULMONARY FUNCTION TEST:

Pulmonary function testing is a complete evaluation of the respiratory system including patient history, physical examinations, and tests of pulmonary function. The primary purpose of pulmonary function testing is to identify the severity of pulmonary impairment.

STRESS TESTING:

A stress test measures how well your heart functions under physical stress. This is important because your heart pumps harder and faster during exercise, which can reveal problems that might not be apparent when you’re resting.

NERVE CONDUCTION STUDY:

Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.

PFT/SPIROMETRY:

Spirometry is one of the most commonly ordered tests of your lung function. The spirometer measures how much air you can breathe into your lungs and how much air you can quickly blow out of your lungs. This test is done by having you take in a deep breath and then, as fast as you can, blow out all of the air. You will be blowing into a tube connected to a machine (spirometer). To get the “best” test result, the test is repeated three times. You will be given a rest between tests. The test is often repeated after giving you a breathing medicine (bronchodilator) to find out how much better you might breathe with this type of medicine. It can take practice to be able to do a spirometry test well. The staff person will work with you to learn how to do the test correctly. It usually takes 30 minutes to complete this test.
