Abstract

The use of microneurography to measure muscle sympathetic nerve activity has provided important insights in human physiology. However, placing microelectrodes into nerves can be challenging, particularly in certain patient populations. In this paper, we describe the use of real-time ultrasound guidance to assist with microneurography, including advantages, disadvantages, and proper training.
