using word old vs chronic in the report
Dr. Herbison, great teacher in electrodiagnosis and rehabilitation always said there is a difference between old and chronic. He defined chronic as something that is ongoing but has changes of longstanding neurophysiological changes. Old as something that has neurophysiological changes but has no ongoing pathology. I would appreciate other opinions as to how neurophysiologists use the term chronic and if they use the term old any time.
