Neuromuscular transmission studies in the healthy dog: EMG and muscle force measurement after repetitive nerve stimulation


Waxenberger, M K; Heckmann, Rudolf; Wiestner, Thomas; Hogg, H P (1992). Neuromuscular transmission studies in the healthy dog: EMG and muscle force measurement after repetitive nerve stimulation. Zentralblatt für Veterinärmedizin. Reihe A, 39(5):372-381.

Abstract

In 10 healthy anaesthetized female dogs the ulnar and the mandibular nerve were stimulated supramaximally by repetitive electric impulses according to a fixed programme. To evaluate the neuromuscular transmission system the course of the evoked compound muscle action potential and the near-isometric force of forelimb and masticatory muscles were studied respectively. The presented results are comparable to values obtained from small hand muscles of conscious, healthy human subjects. The simultaneous measurement of both the electrical and the force response may improve the diagnostic accuracy of the examination in presumed neuromuscular transmission failure in the dog, as it does in humans.
