Stimulation point (S): Erb’s point—the cathode is placed slightly above the upper margin of the clavicle lateral to the clavicular head of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. The anode is superomedial. Machine settings: Sensitivity—5 mV/division, Low frequency filter— 2–3 Hz, High frequency filter—10 kHz, Sweep speed—2 msec/division. Nerve fibers tested: C5 and C6 nerve roots, through the upper trunk, anterior division, and lateral cord of the brachial plexus. D. D. D. D. 4 msec. The upper limit of normal decrease in amplitude from one side to the other is 33%.

Ground electrode (G): Placement is on the dorsum of the hand. Stimulation point (S): The cathode (C) is placed 10 cm proximal to the active electrode, in a line measured first to the midpoint of the distal wrist crease and then to a point slightly ulnar to the tendon of the flexor carpi radialis. The anode (A) is proximal. Machine settings: Sensitivity—5mV/division, Low frequency filter— 2–3 Hz, High frequency filter—10 kHz, Sweep speed—2 msec/division. Nerve fibers tested: C8 and T1 nerve roots, through the lower trunk, anterior division, and medial cord of the brachial plexus.
