Respiratory and Neurodiagnostic Clinic
Humber River Hospital’s Neuro-Respiratory clinic provides many non-invasive tests to determine how well the Neurological and Respiratory systems are working.
Neurology diagnostics examines disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves throughout the body. The nervous system controls all sensations and behaviors, and can manifest in a wide variety of symptoms.
Neurological services include:
- Electroencephalography (EEG) - records the brain’s spontaneous electrical activity over a short period of time, usually 20–40 minutes, as recorded from multiple electrodes placed on the scalp.
- Electromyography (EMG) - evaluates and records the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles.
Referral can be made directly to our booking office from your family physician or specialist. Physician referrals can be faxed to 416-242-1066.
Located on the 1st floor, Portal B in the Portals of Care on the south side of the building. The East Parkade is the closest parking lot.
