BT_RA 1.9 Nerve stimulators for nerve location

A little bit off the topic of the neuromuscular junction, but we might as well cover this LO whilst we are on the topic of nerve stimulators.

BT_RA 1.9 Describe the principles of nerve stimulation to locate nerves and the safe use of nerve stimulators

TRUE/FALSE A short stimulation pulse is an advantage in a nerve stimulator for nerve localisation for neural blockade

TRUE/FALSE A nerve stimulator for nerve localisation should have a constant voltage output

TRUE/FALSE When performing a nerve block with a nerve stimulator, the needle should be connected to the positive electrode

TRUE/FALSE When performing a nerve block with a nerve stimulator, injection of 5% dextrose increases current density at the tip of the needle

TRUE/FALSE Nerve stimulators can be used to locate nerves with no motor innervation
