The sensitivity and specificity of thermometry and plethysmography in the assessment of hand-arm vibration syndrome.

Thompson A, House R, Manno M. Occup Med (Lond). 2008 May;58(3):181-6. Epub 2008 Apr 3. BACKGROUND: Finger plethysmography and thermometry are objective measures used to assess the vascular aspect of hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS). Research to date shows poor correlation between these tests and S


Assessment of the hand-arm vibration syndrome: thermometry, plethysmography and the Stockholm Workshop Scale.

Thompson A, House R, Manno M. Occup Med (Lond). 2007 Oct;57(7):512-7. Epub 2007 Jul 26. BACKGROUND: The Stockholm Workshop Scale (SWS) provides a staging scheme for hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) based on subjective history. Cold provocation finger thermometry and plethysmography are commonly


Nerve conduction studies and current perception thresholds in workers assessed for hand-arm vibration syndrome.

Lander L, Lou W, House R. Occup Med (Lond). 2007 Jun;57(4):284-9. Epub 2007 Apr 11. BACKGROUND: Workers exposed to hand-arm vibration are at risk of developing the neurological abnormalities of hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS).

Thompson A, House R. Occup Med (Lond). 2006 Aug;56(5):317-21. Epub 2006 May 22. BACKGROUND: Hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) refers to the vascular, neurological and musculoskeletal effects that may occur in workers with prolonged exposure to vibrating tools. Hypothenar hammer syndrome (HHS) is a
