An EMG records the electrical response of specific muscles. Nerve conduction studies (NCS) records how fast messages travel along the nerves in the arms and legs.
Both tests are usually done together with the NCS being done first.
Most children are sedated for this test as it is very important for them to lie still. See the instructions for sedation.
Sleep deprivation is not necessary for these tests.
Please wear loose clothing or bring shorts and a T-shirt to change into.
