It is overdue for this module! Please purchase a license.

The Department of Neurophysiology is made up of five rooms distributed in the following manner:

1.- Digital electrocephalogram

2.- Transcranial Doppler

3.- Electromyography 

4.- Sleep Clinic

5.- Inerpretation Room


Clinical Neurophysiology, a medical specialty based on the knowledge of basic neuroscience and its objective is the functional exploration of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) using highly specialized technology with diagnostic and prognostic purposes and for therapeutic orientation. 

Studies were carried out in this department with outpatients and hospitalized patients of all ages. Studies are done by a medical team and a technician trained in neurophysiology and they are interpreted by a Neurologist with a specialty in Neurophysiology and sleep. 

Studies and Services
  • Digital electroencephalogram
  •  Somatosensory evoked potentials
  •  Visual evoked potentials
  •  Auditive evoked potentials
  •  Nerve conduction velocity (NCV)
  •  Blinking reflex
  •  H-reflex
  •  F wave
  • Repetitive Stimulation (Jolly test)
  •  Electromyography (EMG)
  •  Polysomnography (P.S.G.)
  •  Transoperative monitoring
  •  Transcranial doppler-TCD

Technology and Equipment
  • Viking Select Nicolet Electromyography. With this equipment Auditive, Visual and Somatosensory potentials are carried out, as well as the speed of nervious conduction, blinking reflex, H-reflex, F wave, repetitive stimulation (Jolly test), electromyography.
  • Nicolet V44 Electroencephalogram. With this equipment Digital electroencephalograms and polysomnographies are carried out.
  • Sonara Care Fussion Echo Doppler. This equipment is used for Transcranial Echo Dopplers.
  • Endeavor CR Nicolet. Intraoperative monitoring systems. It is the most advanced equipment for carrying out studies and for providing critical and necessary information for spine, brain, vascular and orthopedic surgeries, by monitoring somatosensorial, motor, EEG potentials. Free and stimulated EMG (electromyography) to immediately correct and prevent neurological damage.
