At WakeMed, we use evoked potentials, also called evoked responses, to measure how quickly a nerve responds to sight, sound or sensation. Evoked potentials help with diagnosing neurological disorders, including multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury.
You can expect the highest level of patient-focused care — we understand how life-changing neurological conditions can be for patients and their families. Our neurologists, nurses, technologists and staff share the common goal of providing personal care customized to the needs of each patient.
We perform evoked potentials in both surgical and laboratory settings.
In evoked potentials testing, the specialist places electrodes on the patient’s scalp to record the response of the nerve. The responses are tracked by the time that the stimulation was applied and the speed at which the patient responds. This provides valuable insight into the functionality of the nerve.
In surgery, these tests are done while the patient is under anesthesia. When performed in our cutting-edge neurodiagnostic lab, the specifics of how the evoked potentials are performed is based on the symptoms the patient is experiencing.
These tests can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours, depending on the area being tested.
Our testing is performed in our three WakeMed Neurodiagnostic Labs.
