Evoked potentials testing measures how quickly a nerve responds to a stimulus. At WakeMed, we perform evoked potentials testing in these settings:
Learn what to expect from EP testing In surgery, all testing is done while the patient is under anesthesia. In the neurodiagnostic lab, an EP test is performed based on the symptoms.
For each test, the patient has electrodes connected at the scalp to record the response. The responses are tracked by the time that the stimulation was applied and the speed at which the patient responds. That provides insight into the functionality of the nerve.
All nonsurgical evoked potentials testing is performed in the WakeMed Neurodiagnostic Lab, at our Raleigh Campus, located on the 1st floor in the Medical Office Building.
