Advanced Neurophysiology tests allow the study and analysis in real time of the functionality of the Central and Peripheral Nervous System to provide essential information relevant to the diagnosis and evolution of different neurological diseases.lógicas.
The Neurophysiology studies available at the Hospital HC Internacional de Marbella are:
It consists of the recording of brain bioelectric activity in waking or sleeping conditions and during different brain activity maneuvers (photostimulation, hyperventilation).
It is used to assess the level of consciousness, neurodegenerative diseases and the presence of epileptic phenomena.
Allows the recording of the electrical activity of the peripheral nervous system. It involves a subtype of tests: the electroneurogram by which the speed of nerve conduction is measured and the electromyogram itself where the neurophysiological activity of the muscle is analyzed.
It allows to rule out or confirm diseases such as ALS, Polyneuropathies, Myasthenia gravis, Myopathies, Radiculopathies, etc.
this is an examination that assesses the function of the acoustic, visual, somatosensory system and its pathways by means of provoked responses to a known and normalized stimulus.
It allows to rule out or confirm diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, optic and acoustic neuropathies, spinal cord injuries, etc.
It is the study of sleep and involves the integrated analysis of multiple simultaneous functions: Electroencephalography, Electromyography, Respiratory function through the measurement of oxygen saturation and electrocardiography.
It allows the study of diseases that can affect sleep: sleep apnea / hypopnea syndrome, narcolepsy, insomnia, restless legs syndrome, etc.
