Is conduction velocity the same is nerve conduction velocity?

4 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

Both are ways of representing the speed at which signals travel down the peripheral nerves.
Conduction velocity is decreased in diseases that damage the nerve insulation, either focally (as in carpal tunnel syndrome) or globally (as in guillan barre).

In brief: Yes

Nerve conduction studies measure many different aspects of nerve function, one of which is velocity.
The conduction velocity of a nerve is the speed between two points. We also measure latency, which is the timing of the response, and amplitude, which is the amount of signal that is getting through.
