DUAL PROBE INSTRUMENT Heat sensitive -always shows hotter side Functions as a relative thermometer -detects differential not exact temperature (nervoscope only)

Components of Nervoscope Themocouples - 2 dissimilar metals that produce an electric flow on contact Galvanometer - functions as an amplifier - used to measure TEC Increments 50 on dial - represent relative heat units not degrees

570 Chiropractic Clinical Controlled Research The detectors should ALWAYS be at RIGHT ANGLES to PLANE OF THE SURFACE BEING READ, with single exception of space between atlas and occiput. As we gradually round ANTERIOR curve of neck region, we gradually rotate the detectors around circle, so that when we reach atlas we are now pointing ANTERIOR and SUPERIOR ; we now direct detectors on a direct angle to get detectors, as it were, up in AND UNDER occiput, as tho we were trying to get detectors up IN BETWEEN ATLAS AND OCCIPUT- and that is exactly what we are trying to do.

Development of Pattern

1-3 Pre Scans (Proper Pattern Protocol) 4. Post Scan 1 5. Post Scan 2 (more rest) 6. Next day. No adjustment made. (note small resemblance of pattern deviation) 7. Later same day. Scan cleared out and patient no longer exhibiting static physiology. 8. One week later. Complete Thermal Symmetry. No evidence of Nerve Interference.

INTERPRETATION of SCANS Direction and location of the heat deviation reading -deviations should occur in same direction -deviations should occur at or about same spinal level -deviations should have about the same magnitude
Background image of page 10
Interpretation of Heat Deviations True Heat Deviation 30-60 ° -Used in developing a pattern False Heat Deviation 60-90 ° ---Doctor’s Error -Air Gap (lifted contact) Marginal Heat Deviation 0-30 ° -Usually adaptive, do not adjust patient on this day
