"The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of the NERVEPACE Nerve Conduction Monitor S200 (Neurotron Medical Lawrenceville, NJ) when compared to standard electrodiagnostic testing. The results from the NERVEPACE were compared to standard electrodiagnostic testing in 90 subjects with suspected CTS, with a mean age of 51 and a 9:1 ratio of female to male subjects. There was a high correlation between the latencies obtained from the NERVEPACE and the latencies measured by traditional testing; with a 96.7% sensitivity and 100% specificity. The mean difference between motor latency values obtained from the electrodiagnostic testing versus the NERVEPACE was 0.11 mSecs, and for sensory latency 0.10 mSecs. The NERVEPACE proves to be a useful instrument for the diagnosis and follow-up of peripheral compressive neuropathies due to its ease of use, practicality, high sensitivity, and diagnostic accuracy."
