Abstract: 

Background: Nerve conduction studies (NCS) are performed worldwide; however, we do not have standard values for our society. Motor nerve distal latency is a common electrodiagnostic study. The present study has performed on females aged 20-30 years to draw standard values for their median motor nerve distal latency.
Materials and methods: Normal values of median motor nerve distal latency of both hands of 400 healthy females were determined. All candidates were right-handed. Standard techniques of electrodiagnostic studies were used and values of hands were analyzed by means of t-test.
Results: The mean distal latency of median nerve of right and left hands were 3.36±0.23 and 3.29±0.24 msec, respectively. This difference did not reach the statistical significance.
Conclusion: For some neurologic disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, the normal values of electrodiagnostic parameters are required. Our findings have showed the distal latency of median nerve in females who are at increased risk of carpal tunnel syndrome.
