The protocol recommended by Preston and Shapiro for EDX evaluation of a suspected RNI was followed.6 NCS were performed by two operators, who were qualified physiatrists, using surface electrodes to assess sensory and motor nerves of the upper extremities.
Also, the pulsing sequences are designed to preferentially excite motor nerves rather than sensory nerves.
Both sensory nerve conduction velocity (SNCV) & motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) of all nerves was less in diabetics compared to non-diabetics.

A certain motor nerve with special "locking" properties explains this ability.
Motor nerve conduction velocity was calculated by using the stimulus artifact of the evoked potential, subtracting the latency measurement (in milliseconds) from the sciatic notch from the latency measurement of the Achilles tendon, and dividing the difference by the distance between the two stimulating electrodes (measured in millimeters).
