    Hi there,

    First of all I just wanted to say thank you so much and what a great study guide this has been as I have been preparing for the NCS!

    I had a question regarding the ASIA practice tests in the SCI lecture. I was practicing the first scenario and came up with C5 as the motor level for the L side since the last intact sensory level was at C5. The answer in the key shows it as being C4. I was correct in the R side, but was trying to figure out how C4 was determined for motor for the L. Can you help me at how to arrive here? Thank you!

    Oh my goodness never mind 🙂 just caught my own major error! Haha. C5 is on the myotomal testing and they only scored 2/5 for elbow flexors, thus it must be the level above to match up with the sensory level of C4. No need for explanation, I just spoke to soon! Thank you though!
