Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Baseline and Trauma Challenge Physiology   #630900  About

Definition: A psychophysiological test to measure changes in skin conductance and heart rate in response to a trauma interview and trauma imagery.

Purpose: Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is associated with excessive autonomic nervous system arousal and physiological reactivity to trauma-related cues long after the occurrence of the traumatic event. Quantification of this reactivity has potential relevance to individual differences in physical and mental health outcomes that include medical conditions and response to PTSD treatment.
