A nerve conduction velocity test, also called a nerve conduction study, measures how quickly electrical impulses move along a nerve. It is often done at the same time as an electromyogram, in order to exclude or detect muscle disorders.
A healthy nerve conducts signals with greater speed and strength than a damaged nerve. The speed of nerve conduction is influenced by the myelin sheath—the insulating coating that surrounds the nerve. If the nerve is damaged, however, the signal will be slower and weaker. By stimulating the nerve at various places the doctor can determine the specific site of the injury. Nerve conduction studies also may be used during treatment to test the progress being made.
