1.First: The Department of Clinical Physiology in King Abdul Aziz University Hospital (KAUH) at King Saud University Medical City (KSUMC) :
•The Department of Clinical Physiology in KAUH-KSUMC Riyadh, is a state of art department and was the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Functioning as an independent special unit with new diagnostic technologies, the department began providing its diagnostic services to the population of Riyadh region and accepting referrals from all over the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This department works in close association with departments of Medicine, ENT, Ophthalmology, Neurosurgery, Diabetes clinics and university diabetes center. Clinical neurophysiology is an area of medicine in which selected neurological disorders involving central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems and muscles are assessed, monitored, and treated using a combination of clinical evaluation and electrophysiological testing. In addition, the department provide Pulmonary function tests (PFTs), which are noninvasive tests that show how well the lungs are working. The tests measure lung volume, capacity, rates of flow, and gas exchange. This information used to diagnose and decide the treatment of certain lung disorders. Furthermore, this department helps in the process of diagnosing and treating wide range of diseases, such as cerebrovascular diseases, neurological disorders, dementia and encephalopathies, neurological autoimmune diseases, movement disorders, myopathies, neuromuscular transmission disorders and others.
