Oct 8, - PDF. The drawings were simultaneously digitized with a digitizing tablet. Tremor in each digitized drawing was computed with spectral analysis in an independent laboratory, blinded to the clinical ratings. The mean peak-to-peak tremor displacement cm in the four spirals and mean FTM ratings were compared statistically.

The average of ET is contingent upon correct assessment of the severity, Spearman correlation was 0.

It is best when the same produced and sent to 59 raters. Once the raters returned the rater performs repeated measures of tremor on a patient, par- videotape and completed the score sheet, they were mailed a ticularly when judging tremor in handwriting and drawings. Essential tremor ET is the most common adult and disability related to the tremor. Symptoms are often In , Sweet and colleagues4 developed a clinical progressive and potentially disabling, and may force rating scale for ET to assist in evaluating the effects of patients to change jobs or seek early retirement.

Part A assesses examiner-re- dix. Published online 7 March in Wiley InterScience www.

All participants gave their informed consent to be includes one separate item dealing with global assess- videotaped for the purpose of this study. Some segments contained the same patient fo- tions.

This study builds upon a previous assessment of cusing on different tremor locations, and some segments Fahn—Tolosa—Marin TRS reliability using only two contained different patients focusing on the same type of raters.

The raters were from clinical research sites that would Raters scored each of the 25 video segments using use the TRS in a clinical study of Topamax topiramate scoring sheets containing the TRS Part A and B items. Once clinical evaluation scale; however, evaluators were not the raters returned the completed score sheet, they were given an option of scoring a tremor or zero, because all mailed a second tape with the same ET recordings pre- video segments contained abnormal tremor.

Pouring sented in a different order. The scoring sheet was presented in an order that reliability [see Appendix A, available on-line] Part A of matched the videotape segments and not the standard the TRS assesses tremor severity at rest, with posture TRS scoring sheet.

Assessment of Reliability Part B of the TRS assesses action tremor while writ- Fifty-nine physicians or other medical personnel ing, drawing, and pouring liquids. Training backgrounds included 48 neu- abnormal, unable to keep pencil or pen on paper without rologists, 2 internal medicine physicians, 2 nurses, 1 holding down their hand with the other hand. Pouring is physician assistant, 1 occupational therapist, and 5 re- scored 0 to 4 depending on the volume of water spilled search assistants.

Five raters evaluated only Tape 1 and with each hand. All patients had ET in the face, head, voice, limbs, ratings of the upper extremities8; therefore these areas Movement Disorders, Vol. Items computed for the seven tremor type composites.

Intrarater reliability both Tape 1 and Tape 2. Intrarater reliability was also very slightly greater interrater reliability in Part A. Experience and training for neurologists than for nonneurologists, except in the may play a role in the variable interrater reliabilities.
