Long-time exercise test in the diagnosis of periodic paralysis

Ding Z, Liu M, Cui L. Reference value of long-time exercise test in the diagnosis of primary periodic paralysis. Chin Med J (Engl). 2014;127(18):3219-23.

Abstract

BACKGROUND:
The long-time exercise test (ET) is used to diagnose the primary periodic paralyses (PPs). However the reference values of ET are many and various. This study aimed to investigate the reference value of long-time ET in the diagnosis of PPs.

The Membrane Potential, Voltage-Gated Ion Channels and Action Potentials

Action Potentials 1 - Resting Membrane Potential:

This is the first tutorial in a series on Action Potentials. This video looks at how the Na+/K+ ATPase Ion Transporter sets up a voltage across a membrane.

Action Potentials 2 - Voltage-Gated Ion Channels:

This second tutorial looks at how the Voltage Gated Na+ & K+ Ion channels change the voltage across the membrane of a cell and thus produce an action potential.
