Are Brake Response Times Altered Post CT-Guided Cervical Spine Nerve Root Injections? London Spine Nerve Root

The article assessed whether brake response times are affected before and after CT-guided cervical spine nerve root injections. The study included 40 patients with an average age of 55 years. The results showed that there was no significant difference in brake response times before and after the injections. The mean pre-injection response time was 0.94 seconds, while post-injection response time was 0.93 seconds. The study concluded that brake response time did not significantly change following CT-guided cervical spine nerve root injections. This study provides valuable knowledge as it is the first of its kind in assessing brake response times post-injection, demonstrating that driving safety is not inhibited in this cohort of patients

Abstract

Objectives: To assess if brake response times are altered pre and post CT-guided cervical spine nerve root injections.

Methods: Brake response times were assessed before and after CT-guided cervical spine nerve root injections in a cohort of patients. The average of three brake response times was recorded before and 30 minutes after injection. Statistical analysis was performed using GraphPad. A paired student T-test was used to compare the times before and after the injections.

Results: 40 patients were included in this study. The mean age was 55 years. There were 17 male and 23 female patients. There was no significant difference in the mean pre and post CT-guided cervical spine nerve root injection brake response times; 0.94 seconds(s) (range 0.4-1.2s) and 0.93 s (range 0.5-1.25s) respectively (p = 0.77).

Conclusions: Brake response time did not significantly differ pre and 30 minutes post, CT-guided cervical spine nerve root injections.

Advances in knowledge: To the authors best knowledge, there are no current studies assessing brake response times post CT-guided cervical spine nerve root injections. While driving safety cannot be proven by a single metric, it is a useful study in demonstrating that this is not inhibited in a cohort of patients.
